Wayward Warbler 3
Taken just before he flew off once again.
Wayward Warbler 2
Sweet little bird who flew into our patio doors and needed a bit of time to recover. My husband was glad to oblige him with a warm hand for a few minutes.
It is rare for me to have an opportunity to get this close to birds, even in my yard. I was delighted to have the chance to photograph him before he took to flight again.

Bird in the Hand
NOT LOOKING FOR VOTES ON THIS ONE. It was taken quickly with my cell phone. My husband and daughter found a bird lying by our front door, apparently stunned from flying into one of our windows. We think it may be some type of woodpecker, but I wanted to turn to the experts here for help identifying the little thing. The good news is that he flew happily away a few minutes later.

Found in the yard . . . but, alas, no baby or nest to be seen anywhere. I thought it was too early for eggs. I'll have to defer to the bird experts here at CW.
Clock is messed up on my camera.
I am an amateur self-taught photographer from Burlington, Wisconsin. I have found that most of my favorite photos are those that are "target-of-opportunity" shots rather than planned photos. I just shoot what I love, what intrigues or moves me.
I certainly do not claim to be an expert. I am very grateful to have found this venue to share some photos, but more importantly, to learn. I am gaining so much knowledge from browsing the work of some very talented people here. I don't have an expensive camera, and probably won't in the foreseeable future. However, until that time I can keep learning, practicing, and making the most out of what I have. If you have taken the time to read this, I sincerely thank you. If you have taken the time to look at my photos and critique them in any way, I sincerely thank you.
Thanks for visiting.
