Mountain Bluebird – When we are in Custer State Park we like to go out to the airport early in the morning and photograph the nesting Mountain Bluebirds.
Ruby-throated Hummingbirds – The Ruby-throated Hummingbirds arrive in May and are around most of the summer. For some reason I don’t photography them very frequently. On this particular day I was photographing some other birds when the hummingbird started feeding on a flower right in front of me.
Sandhill Cranes – I typically photograph Sandhill Cranes at Crex Meadows. However, in the spring when the cranes return I participate in the annual crane count. This show was taken at my count location, Gilbert Creek wildlife area, on a foggy morning.
Northern Cardinal – One of my favorite activities in the winter is photographing birds during a snowstorm. The Northern Cardinals usually turn up at my feeders early in the morning and late in the evening when the light levels are too low for photography. The exception is during a snow storm when they are frequent visitors.
