Photo Challenges

Squares and Circles

My contribution to the Squares and Circles A Photo a Week Challenge.

I was having some trouble with the squares part of challenge until I thought about some of the bird feeders made out of square mesh. Then I remembered the circular Oriole feeder we got last year.

A leucistic juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker feeding on a square suet feeder made of square mesh. Leucistic means that the bird lacks dark pigmentation, what should be black is light brown on this bird. The shot was published in a magazinea decade or so ago.

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 female Rose-breasted Grosbeak (Pheucticus ludovicianus).

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.
