Camera Critters #267

For many years, I have tried to get a good image of an Orange-crowned Warbler. It's not that it is a hard to find bird, it's just never in a good spot for me to get a good shot. Plus...the bird won't hold still long enough for my camera to focus on it.

But earlier this week, I was able to find one in the apple tree in my back yard and was able to put camera to it and snap off about 100 shots. I figured at least one of the shots had to be good.

Well, I got two good shots...plus a number of decent shots.

Sweet!!! I hope you'll consider sharing this link to all us bird lovers at the "Bird D'Pot" meme today. It opens for linking at noon Texas time zone. What a great addition for us it would be.

You'll find the link on my right sidebar "I'd Rather B Birdin'" bumper sticker.
