Often while driving down country roads looking for birds or some interesting nature sightings I see birds perched on overhead wires but when I approach the location carefully and slowly in my car they fly away. Not so this week. On two different occasions I have stopped my car beside and right under a bird on a wire, got out of my car and stood there to take the bird's picture without the bird even moving away. I had such luck yesterday afternoon while I took this picture below of a Cedar Waxwing.It was much easier getting its picture when it was standing still.
And on Monday of this week I had the same experience with a Black-throat ed Blue Warbler on an overhead wire.As I had been driving along a gravel dirt road I kept seeing White Admiral butterflies everywhere. So when passing a little dirt side road I saw two on the ground at its entrance. I stopped, got out of my car and approached them, they stayed where they were and didn't fly away. I like those kinds of nature sightings when I am out with my camera looking for something to take a picture of.Above a White Admiral butterfly. I hope I can find something interesting out there today, I'll be looking. Its a nice sunny day right now. Have a great day everyone!
