A Few Random Shots

A few bird encounters while on "non-birding" outings...

~A Wood Stork playing with its food at a local park~




~A Little Blue in the blue~


~A territorial dispute between some Mockingbirds (yes, it is pretty embarrassing that I stopped to take these photos...even a bit more embarrassed about feeling that I should break up the fight)

  4. You've got some superb action images here, Tammy! Love the close-up detailed shots of the Wood Stork and the gorgeous Little Blue with reflections. Look at those mockingbirds fight! I've never seen such a thing. Fantastic photographs, as always!

  5. Great shots! Amazing detail in that fish. Are those mockingbirds flirting or fighting? I'm going with flirting.

  6. Jesus. These shots are amazing. Well done! I've been reading Peterson and Fishers Wild America, and love hearing about the "Wood Ibises" in Florida.

  12. Nothing embarrassing about taking the pictures - but lying flat on your face in public space to take the picture would be! I speak from experience!

    Great pictures.

  13. Awsome shots Tammy, I love the way the water is dripping off the fish, I'd hate to say who would win a beauty contest between a Wood Stork and a Black Vulture, Great shot all round.
    Take care Gordon.

  25. Nice series of bird shots for a "non-birding" outing! Superb quality, naturally, and great profiles of each species. No need to be embarrassed by the Mockers, behavioral shots beat a still portrait any day for me!

    And thank you for reminding us not to take our gorgeous sunsets for granted!
