Two anhinga chicks waiting patiently (at least for birds!) for mom and/or dad to show up with a meal. Not long after this shot, both parents arrived for a happy reunion and a snack.

I was totally amazed at how fast these two grew up. While I did not get the chance to see them fly away, the transformation in the short time I was on the island was truly remarkable. These two were getting close to adult size in a matter of a few short weeks.

Thanks so much to everyone who takes the time to view, like or comment on my photos!

A couple of evenings ago this little male rufous hummingbird was kind enough to flash for me in the beautiful, golden light. Given his vibrant colors it seems only natural to call him Rusty!

I bought a new toy – a folding camp chair that has an integral blind (or hide) hood that covers the chair. It is allowing me to get closer to the hummingbirds (and others) and getting better behavior shots without scaring them away. It gets a little warm inside but it’s worth it!

A mountain bluebird on what must be a favorite perch. How do I know this? There was plenty of "sign" right below where he is sitting!

With two nests nearby, this adult green heron was no doubt taking a break from either egg sitting or foraging for hungry little mouths.

Taken at Ding Darling NWR.
