I think this Song Sparrow was thinking I couldn't see him behind that reed. LOL

Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

Came across this pleasant surprise while out for a drive one day. I wasn't even planning to shoot wildlife, but there he was.

Golden

Beautiful, warm, golden light setting on sanctuary water.

Downy Woodpecker

Shot on an overcast day—the best kind of light for midday shooting!
