House Sparrow to the Death Award

14 May 2009 4 Comments Home » Birds, Exhibitions

        The blog carnival for bird lovers, I and the Bird, is celebrating its 100th edition. Nice to see them give Wild Light the “House Sparrow to the Death Award” for my last post, Chance meeting. Check out all the other winners at the Nature Blog Network.

        I’m exhibiting my bird photographs and paintings at Heron Festival at Michigan’s Kensington Metropark, near Milford/Brighton, Saturday and Sunday.
        I’ll be showing some new work, and will have copies of my books for sale, including a new bug book I haven’t talked about yet.. Come by and say hello if you have the chance.

        Enough of the news, below is a spring goldfinch defying gravity for your pleasure.

    You are the master of this line of photography – photographing small birds in flight. You may want to consider making a post on the technique used for lesser mortals like me.

    Thanks for the nice comment, Thomas. The only real secret is to do this several hours a day, every day. And keep the backgrounds clean and simple.

    Amazing capture.

    This mid-flight kind of photography astounds me every time.

    Thanks Troy. I think I photograph birds in flight because they astound me!
