Backyard visitors

The weekend before last we had a couple of morning visitors frolicking in the sprinkler. Happily they fluttered about for a while, so I was able to grab the camera, change lenses, then play stealth photographer! They didn't seem very afraid, so after some sneaky peering thru the azalea bush, I realized I could just sit quietly on a lawn chair & they pretty much ignored me. The female was a bit more shy, but the male was content to fluff & preen right on the clothesline nearby!

The shy female...

Bailing out of the sprinkler!

Enough with the pictures already!!

Oh, in case you were wondering, these are Western Tanagers!

Wonderful little birds. I especially like the one with his head cocked. I think he is wondering what you are looking at.
