Nature Through My Lens


Pretty Pintail


A Northern Pintail (Acer acuta) looking very handsome as he swims through some greenery on the water.

Sunday Hum


Another shot of the Hummer series. A female Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) catches the sun as she sits on a branch of our Butterfly bush.



A pair of American Goldfinch males, Spinus tristis, on the Niger Feeder. The whole yard was in shadow with the sun going down except for a beam of light, highlighting these two birds! It was quite amazing!

Deep in Thought


This high key image is off a Pine Siskin (Spinus pinus) on the branch of an Empress tree in our yard.

Happy Easter


What better way to wish everyone a Happy Easter than these Lovey Doves in a Cherry tree!  Further from yesterdays post!

Happy Easter!

Outta here


An American Coot dives just as the shutter clicks. I am very interested in time and water movement. This is a great example of both.

Crazy Doo


A Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) in the bushes taking a break from trying to feed in the pouring rain. There are six subspecies of Junco, this one in an Oregon.
I love the hairdo this bird has! Wet feathers, what can one do!
