Of Course They Fly Away... They Are BIRDS!

Scissor-tailed Flycatchers have beautiful coloring and are a huge challenge. Most of the time you see them on a post or wire and they fly off before you can even get the camera in position. It was surprising these guys let us walk around aiming the bazookas at them. Even at close distances, it is difficult to keep the long tail in focus and within the frame. They do flick the tail a lot.

Welcome Signs of Fall

A welcome winter visitor along our Gulf coast is the Marbled Godwit and we found a small flock on the lawn of a beach house in Surfside. Same old problem… getting them to line up nicely so most are in focus is a challenge. At least these were spread out on the grass; the background was not as distracting.
