    Touch the Sun

    I used to take lots of sunset shots along the Edmonds waterfront from Sunset Ave. to Marina Beach. One reason I bought the 7DII was to experiment with using HDR with sunset shots.

    The flicker spent time at the suet feeder without getting spooked. Chestnut-backed chickadees flew in after the flicker departed.

    I returned to the back deck in the afternoon to get some photos before it got too hot. My son dragged out the 600L telephoto lens + tripod for closer shots. The Anna's hummer returned to her favorite perch. Bewick's wrens enjoy this spot as well as my back fence.

    Photo-Techno Geek Speak As I mentioned, I dropped my camera and my 100-400L II telephoto zoom is out of commission until I can get it to the camera shop. Since I would have gotten little or nothing in trade-in for my original 100-400L, I kept it as a back-up when I purchased its succcesor...

    The Anna's returned to her perch at my neighbor's flower bed. After these shots she flew over to my feeder and perched there briefly. I remained motionless, but she still took off without feeding. I suspect she may be drinking there when I am not present. She will lose her shyness...

    The spotted towhee fledgling was foraging beneath my seed feeders. One of its parents indicated the days of free handouts are over in rather dramatic fashion. Welcome to the real world.

    I got up to feed my cat about 5:00 Monday morning (8-03-2020) and noticed the Anna's hummer at what has become her usual perch. I returned to the back deck about 6:00am and grabbed a few shots of the early birds with the 1DxxII + 100-400L telephoto zoom. It was still relatively dark and...

    I have seen a TV show of a town in Texas near the Gulf of Mexico that has a festival every year when the hummers arrive to refuel before continuing on to Yucatan. The videos of hundreds (if not thousands) of hummers perched on feeders in town is amazing. The hummers lose a large percentage...

    Here are the ranges of our local hummers from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. It looks as though the rufous hummers in the PNW most likely fly directly south to Baja without going as far east as the Gulf of Mexico. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Rufous_Hummingbird/maps-range...

    The suet feeder is popular with the nuthatches, chickadees, bushtits, juncos. and woodpeckers. Sometimes there is a waiting line to feed. Photographing the suet feeder can be difficult as it is in the shade for much of the day.

    Red-breasted nuthatches visit my seed and suet feeders. They will often hide a seed in the thick bark of one of my Doug firs for later eating.

    The first afternoon of August (Saturday, 8-1-2020) from the back deck. The morning overcast was replaced by bright sunshine, which made photography difficult. No sighting of the rufous hummer since the hummer war, but the Anna's is back. I don't know if she drove off the rufous or if the...
