Spring/summer birds #2

Hello! Bill and I spent  last week up north at Algonquin Provincial Park. Beautiful fall colours to be seen, yellows, oranges, reds, browns, burgundy, truly remarkable.  We have lots of pictures to go through, so when we do I will have some to share. Until then,  I thought I would share some more Spring/summer bird photos that I've been working on over the last little bit in between card making.

First up we have the Ruby Throated Hummingbird - in our backyard doing a little fluttering of his wings.

Here we have a  robin cooling off in the bird bath during a hot day in August. He/she spent almost 10 min in there splashing around, love the water spray.

Next is a Canada Warbler - I tried to photograph him last year but had no luck. 

Playing a little hide-n-seek was this Chestnut Sided Warbler.  Love him peeking out from the top of the branch.

Along the country side roads was this black swallowtail fluttering around. He stopped just long enough to capture this picture.

I'm working on more photos from the summer, it takes a while to do one as I still don't fully understand all the processing techniques, but slowly getting there. I try to do as much as I can and keep tackling them, when I get stuck at a certain point and can't figure it out I call for Bill's help!   I hope you enjoyed these, next post will be a Bella girl, stay tuned.

I think you know how I enjoy your nature photos, Pauline. The Robin is really enjoying that bird bath! They visit ours a lot and do some serious splashing, but I've never seen them quite that thoroughly wet and bedraggled! Also love the Chestnut Sided Warbler nestled in the leaf cluster. So cute! All simply stunning photos. It takes forever to go through the photos, I know. You and Bill probably have some sophisticated software, but you have amazing photos to begin with. Thanks so much for sharing!
