Picture of the week

A wren on fence

High winds of the past week have only now begun to moderate. This wren was busy singing in my front yard a few mornings ago, despite the wind gusts that ruffled its feathers.

I take some great wildlife photos from my front porch and the surrounding woods… just before photographing the wren I photographed a deer munching down miners lettuce under the pines.

    I love this photo! Such a darling little bird! We have such a variety of birds in our backyard now–even though we’re in the city. You will post the pic of the deer munching down on Miner’s lettuce soon, right? (Grin)

    I love your work–you are such an inspiration, as is Abe Lincoln, another wonderful artist. He takes pictures of all kinds of wildlife, and they’re all in his back yard.

    A stunning picture, bro. I love how the blowing feathers are backlit and seem to glow.

    I like how the sunlight is shining through the little ruffled feathers,… nice catch!
