We've been seeing a bird new to us the past couple weeks - turns out to be a Yellow-throated Warbler. Looking at the range map for this bird we are on the very northern fringe of it's breeding territory. It was busy picking up nesting material this morning which afford a couple shots. My wife brushes our dog everyday out front, and many of the smaller birds seem to love the hair for the nests.





And while sitting on the porch in the drizzle, our usual resident twins sitting on the wall around the spring overflow;

Posted a couple of these in POTW...

We have a place here where a local resident has a large piece of acreage with several interesting critters...buffalo, elk, fallow deer, and I spotted this fawn grazing with 2 does a couple of days ago, about 40 - 50 yards away with a 135mm Makinon. These are White Tailed Deer, native to this area and common.









I also met the owner, and now have permission to go in and take some pictures...might just get some cool shots in the future.

Hyrax. If you're unfamiliar with this curious beast, it is not a rodent. It most closely related to, of all things, elephants.

Pretty Loon
The common red wing blackbird can put out quite the feather display, even when the red is not visible...

With a lake between us I couldn't get close enough to this heron for the shot I wanted. I settled for this framing @210mm with the 55-300. The backlighting demanded a silhouette, so I went ahead and converted to black and white for nice contrast. My favorite part of this photo is how the heron is still standing on one leg even way up in a tree!




I think I posted this one in the monochrome thread a little while back.

A rather poor shot of one of Darwin's (AKA Galapagos) finches.
