The image from above is at sunrise driving out of my subdivision one day last week.
I used my creative juices to flow as I had taken a number of Louisiana Iris images that were just a wee bit off, but still had nice structure...and thus decided to warm them after first making them black and white~

Wild Bird Wednesday
I heard it before I ever saw it...my first ever White-eyed Vireo on April 29.
I was walking back from the Red-Shouldered Hawk nest tree site, and had just about gotten to my driveway.
Not many images, but what a lovely bird it was~
The Blue Jays have been going crazier than usual as we have the Red-Shouldered Hawk nest 3 acres one direction from our home and 2 acres to the other side is a Coopers Hawk nest tree~
They are such beautiful birds!
We hardly ever get to see the Wood Thrush around here, though nearly ever Spring they make their appearance~
Where my friend and neighbor Steve lives, he not only has the R-SHawk nesting in his tree again this year, but he has so many birds that visit that do not appear in our woods, or at least if they do, they are under the cover of a heavy canopy of foliage, and we miss them. The little Yellow-rumped Warbler is one of them~
Another visitor to Steve's yard was the Great Crested Flycatcher.
We have seen them very rarely on Tingsgrove over the years~
Yikes, oh happy, happy is the day that Swallows return to our area and this post has a few of the Tree Swallows that live and hunt neat Covered Bridge Road, one of my favorite drives~
More of the Yellow-rumped Warbler~
I had checked on the Coopers Hawk nest one day following severe storms, and noticed something flopping around and it was the Blue Jay below.
It had evidently hit the neighbors window and had been stunned a bit.
We allowed it to rest in quiet for a couple of hours, and then I released it back into the wild...with no harm done to either of us ;)
