Indigo Bunting Tragedy

I kicked myself and put up the bird screens. Too late for this beautiful jewel...

Today's Walk at Whites Creek

Check back for a few more shots, including the gay wings(now posted). The Gay wings are new for me just this year. They grow in colonies and follow a strategy similar to orchids in that the flower mimics an insect in order to get pollinated, as opposed to providing nectar in payment for services rendered. Lured with a promise of sex, the insect pollinates the flower but doesn't appear to receive anything in return. Life just isn't fair, sometimes.

Updated with a few more shots.

Just Now

Since I couldn't get the yellow throated warbler to display and hold still for a picture, you'll have to make do with this handheld telephoto shot in cloudy conditions of the scarlet tanager that hangs around the front yard.

Morning mist rolls down the creek.

This yellow rumped or Myrtle Warbler is all dressed up in his Spring finery to impress the ladies now.
