Camera Critters

Camera Critters is another wonderful meme hosted by Misty Dawn. You can find other critter photos by clicking on the icon above. Thank you Misty.

 
Two of the more cooperative photo subjects at Meadowlark Gardens; a Robin and a Canada Goose.

 
This is a Red-Winged Blackbird far up in a tree. I couldn't get any closer and I was hoping he would move and fly to a more accessible spot, but he obviously knew my plan and he flew in another direction seconds after I took this photo and perched in an even higher branch in a more distant tree.

Great capture of the Robin Denise and the Canada Goose! Those Red-winged Blackbirds can be very difficult to photograph, even when they are sitting close by and in the sunlight. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

Great captures as always. Canada geese are so fun to watch. They always "talk" so much.

Lovely. I love Canada Geese, although I understand they can be pesky! I've had some robins at the bird bath, but never seem to have the camera handy!

I tried to photograph a bluebird recently, and he kept flying away as soon as I got close. good ones of the robin and goose.

Beautiful birds and very nice photos. Birds are really capricious and difficult to photograph! :-)

Have a nice week!

I like the photo of robin, we don't have them in Taiwan. I am looking forward to photograph them when I will soon back to the US.
