I love how playful and fun Bushtits are, but they are almost impossible to get a good shot of! I feel so accomplished when I actually manage to get one.
Taking shots of Gray Jays reminds me of when I was a photographer’s assistant. He would always sigh when the bride walked out in a super pure white dress because it meant that he would have to fight the white balance the whole time. I felt the same trying to take shots of these birds, but they wouldn’t sit still like a bridal party would. 😉
A pair of Western Grebes start their famous mating run only to be joined by a third uninvited guest (the one in front).
If you are in the area, Lake Hodges is totally full of Western Grebes running around. It’s amazing to watch, although they are really far away. They are even too far for my Nikon P600 to get a clear shot. This was the only group that was close enough to get a good photo.
