Images from Pedernales Falls State Park


As I promised, here are several more bird images that I got at the blinds at Pedernales Falls State Park.  I believe that spring has sprung, given that the weather was great and the birds colorful.  I won’t bother with any senseless text here, but just let you enjoy the photographs.  But be sure to click on the images themselves, to see some beautiful enlargements.

  1. Such a nice variety! You did good AND I know you enjoy your time both in the field and in the process of the final photo. Thanks for sharing and happy hunting. hugs

  2. Excellent photos as always. I had never heard of a lesser goldfinch until last night when I was trying to ID a bird that I saw, and you go and post photos of them today. How did you pull that one off?

  3. I have a whole new respect for birding photography. Snapping still pictures of small flitting, unwilling subjects — with a zoom no less — is HARD. That Lesser Goldfinch is striking, isn’t he?

    Believe it or not, I actually got a couple of decent shots, which I’ll include on my next post. The male Dark-eyed Junco was my fav, but not my clearest shot. I’ll not include him because I’m picky that way.

    • Thank you so much, Shannon, for that glowing comment. I am glad that you appreciate what I go through to get these shots. Would you believe 860 images to get maybe a couple dozen keepers? But I am not complaining, just being outdoors, and being able to even make these attempts is all I want to do. I love the Dark-eyed Juncos, and I really would love to see it.

    • Thanks, Zac. The majority of these shots, I used a Canon EOS 7D with 500mm lens with 1.4 teleconverter, tripod mounted with a Gimbel head. Some images were hand-held with a 100-400mm lens. Thanks for commenting.
