Archaic bird photography.

A bit of a tongue in cheek response to the Daily Post one word prompt Archaic.

The photo was taken two weeks ago using a 10 year old camera, archaic by current standards. And the camera was by far the newest piece of equipment used, the lens is 29 years old and the tripod is 22 years old.

A couple of birds from week 20.

A couple of photos I was considering for week 20 of my 52 week photo project.

I’ve been photographing a few summer visitors recently, filling in some gaps in my files.

A male Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula) eating Grape jelly in an Oriole feeder. Not as colourful as some of the males that were around but this one is hanging around.

Twisting and turning.

A couple of Black Terns twisting and turning as they search for something to eat in a marsh. A bird would spot something in the marsh and twist around in flight.

I was taking a little used back road as an alternative route to visit friends in Saskatchewan when I came across a small colony of Black Terns on a marshy slough. Needless to say, I was late getting to the friends place although they knew I was going to be delayed having seen me on the back road when I was photographing the Terns.

An Eastern Garter Snake eating a Northern Leopard Frog.

Taken at Big Bay, Ontario. I was photographing a Cedar Waxwing when I heard a noise and discovered the snake slowly swallowing the frog. One of the photos was a runner-up in a photo contest about the preservation of nature which I found a little ironic.
