  5. Northern Cardinal

    Northern Cardinal

    I caught this fellow trying to catch a Hornworm. It took him a while to pry the Hornworm from it's branch, but he finally knocked it to the ground and had lunch.

  10. Swallow-tailed Kite

    Swallow-tailed Kite

    Over my yard, late in the evening and I was fortunate to have enough light. These guys are frequent visitors from early spring to late fall, and I never tire of watching them soar overhead. From time to time, one will swoop down and snag a lizard from one of out tall trees.
  11. Mississippi Kite

    Mississippi Kite

    Flying over my yard. I like the way the evening sun lit him up.
  12. Royal Tern

    Royal Tern

    I caught this guy diving in a lake. Thunderstorms were building, and I think it added a nice touch to the image.
  13. Swainson's Thrush

    Swainson's Thrush

    This is my first Swainson's Thrush. I was photographing American Redstarts, Black & White Warblers and Tufted Titmice that had swarmed in and were feeding in our Live Oak (we have a beautiful old Live Oak). He flew out from the under brush and gave me a brief chance for a shot or two.
  14. Northern Cardinal - female

    Northern Cardinal - female

    This little lady landed just feet above my head while I was photographing an immature Brown Thrasher. I guess she thought she was being left out of the action. My camera makes a soft chirp when it acquires focus, and that's what she is reacting to.
  15. Brown Thrasher - immature

    Brown Thrasher - immature

    There were at least 3 of these in the underbrush and they were making a chirping sound I have never heard, in fact, I thought I was zeroing in on a new bird. I waited them out and finally this one came out into the open.
  16. Cape May Warbler

    Cape May Warbler

    We don't see to many of these little Warblers in the yard so we were shocked to see this guy hanging onto the Hummingbird feeder a few months back. I always have my camera, so was able to snap a few before he flew back to Cape May. LOL
  17. Downy Woodpecker

    Downy Woodpecker

    We have an abundance of Downys in the yard, and this one in particular likes to visit the dead limbs on my orange tree. Late fall, he will even peck at my oranges.
  18. Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

    Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

    Another little fellow who finds it hard to sit still. I caught him one day picking spiders out of lichens, and he gave me a chance to get him in focus.
  19. Palm Warbler

    Palm Warbler

    My first Palm Warbler. I was at a pond trying to get some wading birds, or dragon / damselflies, and this fellow just begged me to take his portrait. Of course, I obliged : )
  20. Ruby-throated Hummingbird

    Ruby-throated Hummingbird

    This is one of the first males of the season to show up in our yard. They seem relaxed and don't squabble over the feeder, in fact, they are just as at home picking spiders and other little insects from our Crepe Myrtle. Now, when the females arrive in the fall, they fight like crazy : ) I love...
  21. Ruby-crowned Kinglet

    Ruby-crowned Kinglet

    Surely not my best photograph, but probably my best effort because these guys WILL NOT sit still. This little fellow eluded my lens for 2 seasons and from time to time, I would get a glimpse of that little flash of red on top of his head while looking for other birds, and for the longest time...
  22. Red-bellied Woodpecker

    Red-bellied Woodpecker

    He was drinking from the knot hole he is perched on in the photo. Every few seconds, he would hop back down and drink some more.
  23. Anhinga


    Sitting atop a parking lot light overlooking a small pond.
  24. Tufted Titmouse

    Tufted Titmouse

    This is the kind of photograph I live for. Birds doing what they do. Yes, I like the portraits, but if I can catch one being itself, it's worth all the mosquito bites I have to endure to catch that one series of shots.
