HAPPY TUESDAY ~ FLYING HIGH

Watching and photographing (and quietly listening to) our backyard birds is one of my favorite pastimes.  And I love to look for new bird sightings when out and about in new places.  With photoshop, I enjoy "framing" the images to enhance them in some small way.  Here, revisiting a few of my favorites, each re-framed for today's posting.  Birds make me happy (yes, and you too make me happy, Kismet ... so I will look for your witty remark today, as I do every day!) ... so Happy Tuesday, one and all.

  1. All great shots! My favorite is the red tail hawk. Such a handsome and imposing character.

    1. Thank you ~ t'was a matter of luck, as he/she simply "stayed put" for quite some time, enjoying a
      recent "kill" for a mid-day meal. Otherwise, I'd never have gotten the photo, the hawk would not
      have stayed in place so long.

  6. We love to watch birdies too! That red tail hawk reminded me that we haven't seen Mr. Cool Beans Cooper, our resident Cooper's hawk, in a while. I'm sure he's busy helping to raise his family.

  7. I'd have to grow up to get a 'real' camera again, to get good bird shots like yours! Heck, I need a new pair of eyes too...

  10. It's fun to watch and listen to the birds, we get a lovely chorus of song each morning. There are only a few that i recognize, however, although i enjoy seeing all of them.
