A friend told me where to find some Yellow Lady’s Slippers closer to home than where I usually go to find them. But…she told me about them last Sunday and she had seen them the Tuesday before. So I was the better part of two weeks late when I went there this morning and, sure enough, the flowers had all turned to paper. I decided to look at some of my old images and share one, which I will later, but came across this Eastern Kingbird (Tyrannus tyrannus) from 2007. It was a fun experience as the nest, not shown here obviously, was not too far off the trail but far enough so the birds were not troubled by my being there photographing them.
Just your basic B.O.A.S. (bird on a stick). Canon 10D with a 300mm f/4 uncropped.
