I was fortunate to be invited to photograph two fox dens on private property. The property owner said the kits are most active at 2:30 p.m. so we photographed some other subjects early morning and made our way there to set up before their ‘active’ time. Sure enough, when we arrived one kit was on the hillside outside the den rolling around and napping in the sunshine. That didn’t last long because her sibling came out to play then they both trotted off, likely to spend the afternoon napping in the cool den. I set up on the ground and the waiting game began. 1 hour went by, then 2, then another hour. Finally sometime around the 3 hour mark this little one came out and a sibling joined her. I got some sweet interaction shots between two of them which I will share at another time. One sibling left but this one stuck around and I loved how the light was streaming in through the woods. I set my exposure to -1 1/3 and kept hoping she would look towards the light. Finally she did and here she is. I hope you like it. (This image shows better large so if you like, check link in bio to my flickr page for full version.)

I figured I'd end the week with 'not a warbler.' Quite the opposite. Seeing this Great Gray Owl on a dead end, snow-covered road in Northern Minnesota was one of the most memorable encounters I've ever had. I stood in awe of this beautiful creature then snapped out of it to capture some images so I would have them to remember that moment. Ethical wildlife photography is a hot topic. I don't want to go too deep into it here but I like to think that the majority of us adhere to certain moral guidelines when out in the field. Unfortunately I know that isn't always so as I have seen the product of such poor conduct. At the end of the day I can only speak for myself when I say that I consider every encounter a gift. To have any wild creature accept your presence, even if for only a few moments, is special, and should be treated accordingly. I will admit that when I first started this there were a few times when I was overexcited but then became aware that "oh crap I'm too close" and maybe a bird flushed. I felt really bad about that and learned from it. I learned to give space. Be quiet. Move slowly, if at all. Read posture and body language of whatever is on the other end of the lens. We should view our approach to wildlife with humility and respect. Be quiet observers. Yeah I rambled again--if you read to the end, thank you! 😊 I'm away for a few days. Have an awesome weekend! Next post sometime next week.

The Brewster’s warbler is a golden-winged x blue-winged hybrid that has the black eyeline of a blue-winged but yellow cap and white underparts with a yellowish wash. These hybrids do not sing their own song, rather they sing one of either species and some even sing both. This bird was difficult to get a decent look at as it was staying undercover in the thickets surround the trail. A little phishing brought him (and a blue-winged!) out into the open for a split-second. This is, admittedly, a bit of a crop, but I was thrilled to get a shot of him out in the open so here he is! (Oh and this image took 4 days and a fair amount of blood, sweat and swearwords to get. The things we do for these colorful little birds!) ✔See story for wider angle look, which I prefer.

Prothonotary Warbler singing from within the swampy area where he is establishing territory. I like how this brilliant beauty stands out against the dull backdrop of his dark habitat. (This was my first ever look at this species and I couldn't believe how brilliant they are -- still smiling that I finally saw one!)

I hiked into a local small patch of woods on Sunday afternoon. It had just finished raining. Everything was so lush and green and the woods were full of bird songs. The metallic song of the Wood Thrush stood out among the others. I watched him singing for a while then he hopped down the hillside towards the creek. I  hoped he would come into view on his way back up. He stopped at a few places and sang along the way. Finally he landed here on a fallen tree for about 7 frames. It was pretty dark so this is ISO4000 but I liked the bright green background and look at this pretty spotted bird as he sang. It didn't last long and he flew across the trail then up high and out of sight.

This Snowy Egret had just finished preening and remained perched here over a marsh for a while as the sun set. (Thank you, IG, for cutting off the top of the frame.) Have a great weekend! 😊

Ovenbirds are called ovenbirds because their nests resemble outdoor bread ovens. The female clears a spot on the forest floor and over a period of 5 days weaves a domed nest of dead leaves, grasses, stems, bark, and hair. The nest is hidden from above and generally faces downhill, if built on a slope. Pretty impressive if you ask me. 👈Swipe left for a sketch of a nest that I am sharing from birdsna.org. 🤓 Nerd Facts provided by allaboutbirds.org.

Pretty little Prairie Warbler singing his whisper soft song. This little guy was a surprise to me. I was walking along a powerline cut looking/listening for other species when this handsome fellow caught my eye.

This is the first year that I'm making any sort of attempt at locating and photographing warblers. They are quite a challenge (for me) and unfortunately this spring I have only been able to get out 2 or 3 times which isn't nearly enough for a beginner like me! I didn't think I would be able to shoot on Saturday but I ended up getting out. I saw 10 different species, most lifers, but only got shots of 3 of those species. (Sidenote--I give a ✔ on my list if I see but it doesn't count unless I get a decent image. Then I give it a ✔➕.) So here is a Black and White Warbler who gave me a split-second look before flitting away to pick bugs off of trees.

I got caught sneaking by this American Oystercatcher the other evening. I'm not always a fan of the head on looks but I think it works here for something different. Saturday evening was cold and very windy. Not much else was around in the area I was at except for a pair of AmOy who were hanging out up high in front of the dunes. I walked along the water to get them lined up then started belly crawling (dragging) up the beach towards them. Just as I got in range and started shooting (still slightly uphill) he looked right at me. I stayed still and thankfully they both stuck around for me to get a nice series of them after sunset. Have an awesome weekend!

I was making my way towards the beach for shorebirds the other morning when I saw this Red Fox out of the corner of my eye. The very few chance encounters I have had with foxes near home in PA were so brief because the fox fled as soon as it saw me, as it should. I was expecting the same of this fox but instead she started to walk towards me. That is when I realized this fox was accustomed to being fed by humans. Instead of fearing me, she saw me as a food source and I could see it in her eyes. A mix of emotions washed over me. I was excited to see her so close but sad over how she had been conditioned to approach humans for food instead of fearing them. So here she is making her way across the dune in the first morning light. This morning started off so foggy but the sun had just burned through and everything was glowing.

Sanderling about to enjoy the tiny morsel it plucked from a shell. I'm really looking forward to shorebird season! Being in the sand and watching these birds move about on the beach is one of my favorite things. 👈Swipe left for tag info. .

The other morning I was driving down a road that had a lot of trees starting to bud. I previously saw kinglets in the area and had hoped to see one on the budding limbs. I wasn't seeing or hearing any kinglets but I did hear a House Wren singing his loud song. It took a while for me to locate him but here he is, singing out loud for the whole world to hear. 🎶

Pied-billed Grebe giving me a wary sideways glance as she emerged from the reeds along the shore and headed out into open water. I really like how the evening light warmed the dried grasses in the distance and hope you do, too.

I really like how the evening light warmed the dried grasses in the distance and hope you do, too. . . . . . . #piedbilledgrebe  #grebe  #nanpapix  #naturephotoportal  #best_bird_shots  #your_best_birds  #shots_of_animals  #bd_pro  #bird_brilliance  #1natureshot  #birds_perfection  #elite__birds  #audubonsociety  #bbcearth  #planetbirds  #naturyst  #wildlife_inspired  #birds_captures  #bb_of_ig  #top_macro  #birds_private  #fowl_waterfowl  #birdfreaks  #nature_worldwide_birds  #birds_adored  #eye_spy_birds  #kings_birds  #ip_birds  #nuts_about_birds 
I took this back in February when this was the only sandpiper on the beach at the time. I enjoyed watching him run along the shore until after the sun set. Then he seemed to calm down and just stood here. Looks to me like a good spot to spend the night. This was my final frame before leaving the beach for the day. Do you find that sometimes that last shot of the day is the best? Have a wonderful weekend!
