Camera Critters #259

Several months ago, I did one of my favorite things…I grabbed my camera and went for a walk.  It was a nice winter day with no sun, which I like because I don’t have to worry about shadows.

As I walked by a roadway which dived down into the dry canyon which runs through town, I noticed a flock of small birds flitting about halfway down the road.  So I headed in that direction.

As I stood watching the small, gray birds fly from here to there, I raised my camera and began shooting images.

I shot a total of about 40 images and the one below is the best of group.  It shows a female Bushtit.  How do I know it is a female?  The bird has yellow eyes.

If speaking to my delinquents in the "cellblock" at our middle school school, I would have to be VERY careful in my pronunciation of this name. Those kids can distort about anything I say. and would burst into laughter and snickers. Love the shot. It is so "real life in nature" looking. genie
