I had to work yesterday, but the customer lives in Deale, near the water, so we strolled around looking for birds before the work started. It was slow, but it will be a good place to visit again in the Fall.
I tried another new place today, Lake Kittamaqundi, in Columbia. There wasn’t much to see today, but it’s got potential.
This Eastern Tiger Swallowtail is one of the few butterflies I’ve seen recently.
I haven’t seen a Laughing Gull since early Spring.
The dark blue background makes this ordinary Tufted Titmouse look pretty good.
This Song Sparrow was at the lake.
Mallards were the only waterfowl we saw today.
I took at least 20 shots to get one acceptable Purple Martin.
