    Texas Longhorn

    I'm pushing the envelope as far as wildlife I suppose, but thought these might be of interest. The Texas Longhorn is a direct descendant of cattle brought to the New World by Columbus in 1493. Lee You can tell from her ribs it was a long, hard winter, but with the lush grass she'll soon...

    White Crowned Sparrow

    I don't think these guys are rare, but this is the first time I've got a shot at one. Hey, folks, do you find these shots too busy? I'm always torn with shots like these whether to tone down the backround to emphasis the bird or leave it as shot. After all the background is rather pretty too...

    Backyard Critter "Challenge" (7 shots)

    It is amazing how "critter shooting" opens one's eyes to "commonplace" wildlife, which are not commonplace at all, but rather wonders to behold. Here's a fun challenge -- just take a walk in your own yard and see how many critters you can photograph as you wander around, then post them here...

    Eastern Bluebirds & Swallows

    My "Flowers" post got exactly one reply and zero likes, so hope my birdie shots do a little better! :???: Lee Note: No saturation boost, no vibrance boost. Bluebirds are very brightly colored. 1 "Oh, my aching wing!" 2 "Good bug!" (The females aren't as colorful as the males, but still a...

    Flowers? Who? Me?

    Never did much in the way of flower photography, so go easy on me! Taken with a Canon FD 50/3.5 macro which is a fine ole legacy lens. All very small flowers except for the tulip and dandelion. The first two are crocuses. Lee 1 2 3 I have these -and the yellow versions available for sale...

    Pied-billed Grebe & Coot

    Backyard Birds

    Nothing special -- just some birds in the backyard. Lee 1 2 3 Something happened to this Robin. Note the rather severe injury(?) on the breast. Seemed healthy enough and could fly OK, so whatever it was, the bird recovered. 4

    Pelicans in Indiana!?

    Yup, the American White Pelican passes through the American Midwest on their annual migration. Unfortunately, none would fly my way. Darn! Lee 1 2 3 4 5 6 Those are coots in the background.

    Slightly Squirrelly Squirrels & Mayhem Mammal Shots

    We had a lot of fun with crazy bird poses, so how about some squirrelly squirrel and mayhem mammal shots? I KNOW there are a lot of shots better than mine waiting to be posted, so dig 'em out. I included the mammals because there are quite a few places in the world that are squirrel-less. I...

    Bald Eagle nest

    I could not get close enough to get a good shot of the eagle, but the nests themselves are interesting. The eagles reuse the nest year after year and – perhaps like people – put on additions. The typical nest will average 1.5 meters (5 feet). However, they can get as big as 2.8 meters (9 feet)...
