A gila woodpecker coming in for a landing. I was having some fun yesterday with the Olympus Pro Capture mode which allows you to buffer images, and the go back in time for the perfect position.
A Curve-billed thrasher from Monday night at the Desert Photo Retreat. One of the complaints I hear from bird photographers regarding 4/3 systems like my Olympus is that you can’t get those silky smooth out of focus backgrounds. I say non-sense!
A Pyrrhuloxia last night from the lower blind at the Desert Photo Retreat. I have been so busy with guest and projects lately, that I haven’t had any time for my own photography. Last night I got a chance to enjoy that beautiful light in the lower blind!
I thought I would take advantage of my experience feeding and attracting birds at the Desert Photo Retreat share my trip and tricks on a Youtube video. If you are receiving this via email, you will need to click on this link: Attracting and feeding birds. Enjoy! Let me know if you have further questions.
This was captured in the wash just below our rv this morning. The bobcat has been around this year, I have seen it a few times, but yet to come to either water hole for some reason. I keep a trail cam on both my waterholes, but have a third camera that I move around to see where things are coming and going.
Such a colorful birds, I can’t help but to photograph these guys!
I love the background in the evening at the lower blind – some evenings it really is rich! Black-throated sparrow.
For those who are wonder about our Arizona winter operation, but are not really sure what it is all about – Jim Griggs created this awesome 4 minute video that pretty much covers it perfectly!
