The Robin’s Two-Fer

I watched a Robin this morning as he worked the damp grass. We had a nice soaking rain yesterday and it seemed the bugs and worms were still hanging out close to the surface. I didn’t realize it until I looked at my photos, but this robin not only caught the worm…but had a grasshopper in his beak while doing so! Hence, the robin’s two-fer!

Buzzard Surfing the Wind

We’ve had some really strong winds today, which has been nice to move some smoke out of the region. Sitting on my back deck loving on the cats, I watched five buzzards just surfing the wind streams. By the time I ran inside for my camera and got back out to the deck, there was just one still floating around. This shot was my favorite.

This shot was my second favorite as the bird flew along the clouds. Rather than worry about lighting, I just kept snapping photos. I like how this shot turned in to a bit of a Batman signal!
