Memorial Day Picnic for Baby Bluebirds

photo two

This spring has been an incredible time for bluebirds in Fairfax County.

After photographing and videotaping a family of bluebirds for the last several weeks, earlier this weekend the feeding of the fledglings on our back deck commenced.

Today, Memorial Day, the fledglings’ feeding frenzy went full tilt. Thanks to some patience and some nice overcast skies, I was able to capture these images this morning.

I hope your Memorial Day is going well. Thank you to all those (and their families) who have served and sacrificed so we can continue to enjoy the freedom we do, even in these very challenging times. We can never take  them for granted.

You Don’t Have to Travel Far to Capture Nice Bird Photos

Rose-Breasted Grosbeak

Many of the best bird photos I have taken did not involve super telephoto lenses or expensive trips to exotic locations. I did not have to sit in a freezing rain or endure hours or harsh sun to shoot all of the photos (including the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak shown above) on this post.

These images were all taken on a back porch on the same day at Deep Creek Lake. (please click here to read more and see many additional photos) Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge : Focus Cardinals in the Snow

These were some photos I shot a winter or so ago of a cardinal. It looked so beautiful in the snow.  In the photo above I really wanted to illustrate how much snow had piled up on the bird feeder.  In this shots below, I  wanted to get just enough depth of field to have the cardinal sharp  in focus  and not a lot else.
