When Life Hands You Lemons
This little Lesser Goldfinch was chirping up a storm in this lemon tree. I thought it was so beautiful that the bright green tree was full of yellow lemons and goldfinches and I desperately tried to get a shot with the lemons in the background… but all I could get was that one little tiny lemon edge on the left.
This nice male Lesser Goldfinch was kind enough to sit so that way this branch would frame him perfectly. So considerate!
It’s a Blur
This male Lesser Goldfinch looks like it’s standing in front of those blurry backgrounds that photographers take your picture in front of when you go in for a studio session. It’s like his senior pictures.
Well, looks like all the orioles have moved on. I found this one photo that I hadn’t posted yet, so I thought it could be a tribute to the oriole season being over. As much fun as they have been I’m not sad to see them go. They’ve been going through my nectar so fast and they also scare away all my hummingbirds. I’m hoping that they hummers will return now that all the oriole teenagers are gone.
A Feather Out of Place
I don’t know why, but all I can see when I look at this photo is that one little feather on the back of the head puffed out. Reminds me when you see an image of the back of your head and your hair doesn’t look like you thought that it would.
For some reason, this shot managed to have a wonderful halo effect in the background. Looks like I instagramed it, but it happened all on it’s own.
I’ve gotten about 6 juvenile Hooded Orioles downing three feeders every other day at this point. Teenagers, am I right?!?
I’ve gotten a new brood of three juvenile Hooded Orioles hanging out at my feeders. This is the smallest of the three and I thought she was just adorable.
