Mocking bird

Uploaded: April 11, 2008


Every spring a pair of Mocking birds will nest in my "bottlebrush" tree. They have an awesome list of song's they sing...nice to listen to. However Mocking birds are very protective. When mama is sitting on her eggs, papa will dive bomb ANYTHING that moves within a 50 foot radius. It's kinda fun watching my neighbors run for cover when they pass by.
I used a 70-300IS lens. F/10, 1/500

Bob- Hello there and a good day to you. My wife Annie and I took a walk though your gallery and we were quite impressed with your work. You have some beautiful works here. They speak well of your talent and creativity.
I have always loved watching birds, taking pictures of them. I moved to Alabama recently and have seen some that I am not aquainted with so that is a thrill. I have my feeders up and have to get my bird bath going.
You have done such a fabulous job with the capture of this mocking bird. Love the composition. The lighting is superb. Clarity, clear and sharp.
Love the coloring of the bird. The details do a wonderful job of bring out all the beautiful features.
Excellent work
Have yourself a most wonderful day, take care, be safe out there. #900062
