Camera Critter #108

I'm always looking for something new to image. And when that something appears in my backyard, I'm happy.

This Evening Grosbeak isn't the first one I have seen, but it is the first one I have gotten a decent photo of.

Misty Dawn's Camera Critter Meme is a great way to see critters of all types. Go to the home page here and check out others. Then join the fun and post your own critter photo.

LOVE the polka dots on its tail! What a neat looking and pretty bird. I've never seen one, that I know of!

Wonderful shot, I have never saw an evening grosbeak, but I keep looking, we get rose breasted ones around here.

What a LOVELY bird! I have seen rose-breasted grosbeaks here but NEVER an evening grosbeak ~ I wonder if we have them in Virgnina.
I will have to research that.

What a great tail too!!

Execellent shot for this week's photo meme. Bird watching is so enjoyable but rather tricky too to really capture the birds on picture.
