Photography: Birds

Dark-eyed Junco, Bird Photography

The Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) is nicknamed the ‘Snowbird’, because according to some folks, winter is not far behind when you spot these birds. They tend to live in small flocks during the winter. While they live year-round in some areas of North America, they usually migrate North in the Spring. These medium-size birds (4 1/2″ – 6 1/2″) are one of the most common birds in North America, but are fun to watch as they visit the feeder.

Seeing the World in Black and White

This curious guy seems to always want in on the action. He better watch out for the hunters if he leaves the yard, if he doesn’t want to end up in squirrel gravy.

Pileated Woodpecker, female

I call this large female Pileated Woodpecker a visitor, but she and her mate appear to have moved in. They are the largest birds we have here regularly (about 16 1/2 inches),  besides an occasional visit from a hawk… then everyone scatters, including the squirrels. ~

Poetry ~ First Snow

Snow Today

First Snow

Gentle rain turning

to soft downy flakes,

each intricate and unique.

 

Sounds of the world

muted in the deep.

Solitude calling us

to slow down,

memories we keep.

 

Soft downy flakes

turning all to white,

except the dark bark of the trees,

standing sentries

along the steep banks

of the creek. ~

Otter Creek Covered Bridge, SE Indiana, USABlack and White Photography, Fall, Indiana, USA

Caterpillar with Medium heavy coat

What a beautiful warm Fall day in Indiana! No problem with social distancing on this great day to be out. Just out looking to see what I could find and capturing more images towards my goal of photographing all the covered bridges in my state. Warm days like this is a true gift as we know there won’t be  many more before old man winter is blowing his icy breath. Maybe the not too heavy of a coat on this wobbling caterpillar is a prediction that this winter will be a more mild one. Hope you liked this little sharing of Indiana. Thank you for visiting today. ~ terre

Full moon, blood moon, glows.

Blue moon, old man in the moon.

At last, the Hunter’s Moon. ~

A good sunny day for busy bee’s. Caught two different species working side by side on this brilliant yellow mid-west wildflower. You just never know what will catch your eye when on a walk about. Have a great day and thank you for visiting!  ~ terre

Hello on this lovely Spring day! At least it’s Spring for those of us in the northern hemisphere. Today, I took just a little short walk in my little patch of woods. There is nothing like nature to lift your spirits! I found these Spring Beauties, yes that is what they are commonly called and it is easy to see why. I hope you enjoy them. Take care and hope you too get out a bit and enjoy some fresh air. Happy Earth Day! Thank you for visiting today.
