A bird in the hand is worth…

…two in the bush.

I took an early morning walk around the yard and saw these two birds. The bird on the left is a Swamp Sparrow and the one on the right is a Red-eyed Vireo. The young Swamp Sparrow thought he was the Cock-of-the-Rock and was chasing off the resident Song Sparrows. He tried talking smack to the vireo, but he was not having any of that.

I’m rather pleased with this because it rarely get a good photo of two bird species in one frame. Not only that, but getting a Red-eyed Vireo is the frosting on the cake. They are common here, but they are never found this low to the ground. This Vireo is also a youngster.

Self Portrate

Taken across the street from Harvard Square, waiting for the bus. Yah, that’s me in there, way in the back.

Yellow Colored Lance-tipped Darner

I spooked up this Lance-tipped Darner on Saturday morning. It was a fairly friendly bug, and I was setting up some shots with some success until a yellow jacket came along and chased my darner out.

American Copper Photo Study

There are so many American Coppers in the fields now that I thought I would focus a photo shoot on just that butterfly. In particular, I love shooting goldenrod. It makes a nice accent color when used in a washed out background. It also has interesting flows and shapes.

Lance-tipped Darners

I must say, I’m having a good late summer darner season this year. Since most darners are such active and powerful fliers, they are very difficult to find in a situation where one can set up a shot. In recent weeks, I have been doing quite well. I did find this mating pair that I was able to work with for few minutes.
