I took this photo in the darkest of forests, under the shade of the tree canopy. The light could only break through in a few places and in the few places it did break through the birds were attracted to the light. This spotted flycatcher was enjoying the warm light for a good few minutes.

I spent an amazing hour watching this Little Owl on Saturday evening. Im hoping for a repeat performance on Saturday morning when hopefully he will be front lit.

Guess what? NOT a Cardinal :)
But I'm shooting way too much Bluebird--they'll be gone soon enough, unless I can figure a way

Fledgling female ruby throat hummingbird perched on a crocosmia stalk. She fed at all my plants stopping to perch several times, "here, there and everywhere" (John Lennon quote).
