We did make it to St. Marks Wildlife Refuge and had a wonderful day of birding. You all had very inspiring photos this week and many birds that I have seen and many that I have not. Thank you for sharing your birds!
Reflections are mirror images of the subject against water or wet surface of any kind. It can also be from a mirror itself. Unless you have a pet bird, the mirror didn’t seem too likely this week. There were however some incredible nature reflection shots by everyone this week.
Black and White week is always a hit! I love this challenge when we do it as it gets us into a new dimension of creativity. Composition, contrast, lighting, textures and patterns are always things to consider when creating for black and white, but it is amazing what we can do with our color photographs.
For week #39 of Bird Weekly, you shared your birds that eat fish as their primary diet. Kingfishers were quite popular as I thought they would be. There were some really awesome shots whether it was a bird in action or in the act of looking for lunch or dinner!
Week #38 of Bird Weekly brought us “E” Birds as opposed to Ebird. Many of you shared egrets, eagles and eastern or eurasian something or another. Another fine gallery of birds this week with lots of white feathered birds that got postponed from the week prior to this week.
Week #37 of Bird Weekly was all about the white feathered birds. The controversy of whether it is a color or not is an interesting subject. Technically, black and white are not colors at all but are shades.
Week #36 of Bird Weekly proved to be a difficult week showcasing hawks. One of the hardest hawks to identify is the Cooper’s Hawk vs. the Sharp-shinned Hawk.
Week #35 of Bird Weekly celebrated some of our favorite birds and the birds we love in honor of Valentine’s Day…if you celebrate it.
Never assume anything when you see birds on a wire. If you have your binoculars in hand, check them out. They are not always the common blackbird, starling or dove.
Brown is the new kaleidoscope of color and all of you met that challenge with some gorgeous birds this week.
