a while back I posted a similar photo
I caught this wren flying up from the ground with yellow in its beak.
It landed on the fence then onto some firewood.
It's a marigold petal and it proceeded to 'kill' the petal then drop it, chase it, recapture it and eventually swallowed it. Very entertaining.

These are a couple of really well photographed shots of the grebe family, Dennis. Very nicely done.

Thanks Mike! They usually don't let me get that close.

I normally don't do feeder shots unless something special. Pied plumage with green flecks on the gorget on a hummingbird is special to me. I assume a ruby-throat but not positive.

Nice pose and lighting on that scrub jay. I wonder why they need four rings!
