...Only poor boys take a chance On the garden's song and dance Feel her flowers as they wrap around But only smart boys do without... Volatinia jacarina.

The smoke was pretty unbearable on Friday. Deep in the forest we felt smothered and anxious, a mental state that we typically associate with winters darkest days. For the better part of the afternoon, the sun was barely visible through nature’s own “sepia” filter.... and this was hundreds of kilometres from the nearest large fire. I can’t image what those in the vicinity of the fire are feeling. • Despite the atmospheric conditions, @charchukphotography and I had a successful day in field finding a Barred Owl and 5 Great Grey Owls including this adult who was hunting, undeterred by the smoke, to feed three begging fledglings nearby. I’ve done my best to preserve the smoky conditions in the photo above. • • • • • #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #nuts_about_birds #explorecanada #wildlife_perfection #planetbirds #nature_brilliance #CanadianCreatives #bestnatureshots #wildlife_inspired #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #exclusive_wildlife #BestBirdShots #your_best_birds #explorealberta #bestbirdshots #eye_spy_birds #travelalberta #yourshotphotographer #pocket_birds #birdfreaks #InstaNatureFriends_ #live_love_wildlife #EarthCapture #imagesofcanada #destination_wild #wildplanet
Cairns Superstars Part II 1/6: Nutmeg Mannikan
Mallards mate on water as well as on land and the drakes may just have caught up to this hen on the water, or she may have tried to escape by going into the water. In the vast majority of cases, the hen will eventually escape. They do sometimes get injured or even killed in the course of forced copulations, and that’s probably because they simply get battered and smothered by all the aggressive males. #menseselense #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #naturephotography #samsungwb2200f #mjpphotography #splendid_shotz #splendid_birds #marvelouz_animals #splendid_animals #marvelshots #your_best_birds  #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #feather_perfection #joureisbeginhier #kenjouplek #wegtydskrif #mallard #magaliespark
Warbler
This was my first year ever seeing bobolinks and they are such neat birds. This guy was posed so nicely in front of the yellow flowers

How do you catch a unique bird? Simple...unique up on it 😂 + + My yellow crowned night heron friend didn’t find this joke too funny as you can see haha. + + Swipe to see our #staringcontest Shot on my Sony a7ii w/ old Minolta MD 50mm 1.4 bokeh monster 😁 + + + + + #big_shotz #bokeh_shotz #bokehlicious #bokehkillers #depthobsessed #depthoffield #bokeh_addicts #macro_mood #macro_holic #birdistheword #birdsofinstagram #birds_captures #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #bird_lovers_daily #ig_nature #nature_lovers #nature_good #floridawildlife #floridaexplored #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeplanet #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild
🇸🇪 Enbent svartsnäppa. Många fåglar - inte minst vadare - sover och vilar ståendes på ett ben. Detta för att minimera förlusten av kroppsvärme. Nu var det stekhett dagen denna bild togs så denna individ kanske bara ville skryta lite om sin förmåga att hålla balansen. 😉 • 🇬🇧 Spotted redshank. Standing on one leg reduces the decrease of body temperature. Picture was taken on a really hot day so maybe this bird just wanted to show off its balancing skills. 😉
¡Con qué delicadeza se agarra a la corteza este agateador europeo! Lo consigue gracias a sus largas uñas y a su cola, con plumas de raquis gruesos y fuertes, que utiliza como apoyo para trepar. 🐥⬆⬆🌳 Un ave fácilmente reconocible por su canto🎶 y algo más difícil de ver👀 debido a su críptico plumaje. Aunque cuando lo ves, ¡no deja lugar a dudas! Su aspecto y su comportamiento, mayoritariamente trepando por la corteza de los árboles🌲 en busca de alimento🐜, son inconfundibles. A no ser que te encuentres en los Pirineos o en la Cordillera Cantábrica... Donde los agateadores europeos (Certhia brachydactyla) comparten hábitat con los agateadores euroasiáticos (Certhia familiaris), ¡que son extremadamente parecidos!😬😌 . 📍Agateador europeo | Raspinell comú (Certhia brachydactyla)
I received a tip off from the brilliant artist @deborahvasspainting this afternoon that one of the tawny owls that had nested in her garden this year was showing well, and that I'd be welcome to come down with my camera. So, I didn't hang about and shot off in the car! I crept as quietly as I could (lots of crispy fallen leaves underfoot) through the garden and got a fantastic view, so exciting to see a tawny during the day! It gave a stare as if to say 'I'm warning you pal, DO NOT come any closer', so I let it be. Owls are wonderful creatures and having just returned from a fabulous #birdfair having seen @drmiriamdarlington 's inspiring talk about her fabulous book, I really can't wait to go owl watching at the fen this coming Autumn & Winter, especially for short eared owls at Burwell.
After several failed attempts to get near this Kingfisher, I was finally able to find an area that kept me concealed while still offering a clear view of her perch. I've had little success photographing these birds in the past, so it's nice to have found an area that may offer more success.

Golden Hour. Many a photographer are obsessed with golden hour shooting, that hour after sunrise or before sunset when the world becomes magically lit. This is the hour during which I had the pleasure of photographing this Golden-winged Warbler (vermivora chrysoptera)...gold in gold. Unfortunately, the stunning golden-winged warbler has suffered among the worst population declines of all songbirds in the past fifty years. This is due to standard reasons like habitat loss, sure, but also a non-standard reason...warbler wars. In much of its range, it is losing ground to its seemingly more aggressive cousin, the blue-winged warbler. To make matters worse, hybridization is occurring, through which golden-winged and blue-winged warblers (and their hybrids) are mating to produce Brewster's and Lawrence's warblers! Thankfully, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and its partners have enacted a conservation plan that aims to bolster this warbler's population by 50% over the next 30 or so years.
The forests around here are full of Vireos at the moment. In the east I love seeing Blue-headed Vireos at this time of year. Out here in the west I was happy to meet this Cassin’s Vireo for the first time this week. It used to be lumped together with Blue-headed and Plumbeous Vireos and called a Solitary Vireo. Now they are 3 separate species. 🌲🌲🌲#lifer #birdnerd
Look it’s a funny looking bird. Do you have a favorite bird and a place to see it?
