Backyard shots

last week I was in the florida keys for vacation. It was a bird haven, I got 53 shots that are up to a good standard for me and will take a few posts. This post is a catch up from shots I got at my feeder a fews ago. I really like the sapsucker.

some new shots

We finally have off of school this week and I am taking advantage of it. I got lifer red header woodpecker this week, but no shot due to stupidity difficulties. I got my favorite duck in flight the other day. The common goldeneye is hands down one of my favorite ducks. They are so skittish and hard to photograph around here. The other day I was down at the river and I heard this noise looked up and a male and female came whizzing by. I thought i missed them, but they turned back!!! It was cloudy and I had my camera set to AV thinking the camera might be smart, no it shot at 1/4000 of a second. I dont understand why, but weirdly the shots came out alright. Also Im posting some kinfisher shots I got a week ago. They are another tricky bird to get a picture of. Yesterday I got one of my favorite shots I have ever taken. A sapsucker came to my feeder and landed on the tree to pose for me. I had been waiting on my porch for this, and got one shot. Thatll be next post :)
