Well, here it is the fifth of June already. My sale on Saturday went pretty well. I sold many photographs, but I still have many left. I am talking about my excess of framed photos that were taking up space in my storage area. But I met and made new friends, some that had been unaware of my work. Also, I have found that I have many more new readers that have logged onto this blog. I welcome you.
For you newbies that are reading this, at the top of the page you can see several buttons that link articles about me and my various adventures. Check them out. I think you will enjoy them. I wrote them all, and I am impressed, too. I have some new photos to share here today, and I hope they impress you as well. Click one any of them to see some beautiful enlargements.
My favorite bird to watch for in the spring, the Painted Bunting. One of the most beautiful birds in the state of Texas, and one of the most sought out by birders and bird photographers. I think this is one of my best of that specie. But I often say that every time I photograph one. I am always happy when they make their spring arrival.
The Blue Grosbeak is one that I always anxious to see each year.
This Yellow Warbler flew into our bird blind at San Angelo State Park. The first of the year for me.
The Golden-fronted Woodpecker is the predominant woodpecker in the San Angelo area. I am always impressed with the brilliant coloring of the male. The female is absent of the little red crown.
This Great-crested Flycatcher is the first one that I had ever seen close enough to photograph. They are rare in this area, but they can be found with careful searching. It easy to confuse them with Ash-throated Flycatcher that are plentiful here.
So that is all for this writing. Of course, I will be hitting the field again the next several days, in my never-ending quest for more photographs. So watch for another post in a few days.
In the meantime, I have prints available for all of the images you see on this blog. If you are interested, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are one of my bird coffee mug collectors, click here to see what I have added. Just click the one you like and purchase information will appear.
’til the next time, Happy Birding!!
