It’s an Evening Grosbeak!
While visiting our son in Montana, I spent some time sitting like a statue watching the bustling activity at their bird feeder.
There were two of these beauties peeking at me from behind the leaves of a lilac bush. Eventually they decided that I had no feathers OR wings, so I wasn’t a true threat and they popped into view.
Today I decided to share some images of dew drops on rose bush leaves that I took with my new point and shoot camera. The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is awesome!
I didn’t use a tripod on these images, so I’m really surprised at the clarity.
I’m very excited about “traveling light” in the near future and finding out just what this little powerhouse camera can do.
MY NEIGHBOR FOUND THIS LOVELY CREATURE, ALONG WITH A GANG OF HIS/HER BUDDIES, CHEWING UP A LITTLE PALM.
THE BLUE BACKGROUND IS FROM THE GLOVE MY NEIGHBOR WAS WEARING…JUST IN CASE OUR LITTLE FRIEND HAD SUPER-POWERS!
Like the title says, there was a bird at that feeder just moments before I fired the camera….not in focus, but it made me laugh.
By the way…I did not put sticky pads on Oliver’s paws and attach him to the window…he was flying high one minute and zooming toward earth the next…free as a bird…pun intended.
WELL ALRIGHT….THESE ARE NOT IMAGES OF AN ELF…BUT THE YOUNG FAWN IS SO TINY THAT IT SEEMED ELF-LIKE TO ME.
I THINK THIS IS THE YOUNGEST FAWN I’VE EVER SEEN VISITING THE BACKYARD…SUCH A TREAT!
