Saturday’s Shots

I think the hardest part of taking pictures Saturday was deciding which shots I liked the best. The unexpected, but much-appreciated sunshine made taking pictures a joy. It, and the lack of shooting since hunting season has ended, also seemed to bring out the birds in force, particularly the Red-Winged Blackbirds. The males were loudly declaring their claim to the much-prized wetland reeds.

Despite the fact that I have nearly as many Red-Winged Blackbird shots on my hard drive as I do GBH shots, I still find it difficult, if not impossible, to not take a shot of one when they’re flashing their wings and singing loudly, as these two

were.

Too often, they come out as black blobs. It’s seldom that you’re able to distinguish the brown lines on their feathers as you can here.

I actually went back and deleted some previous shots rather than my new shots, as I usually do.
