Summer Photo Fun: More Caption Fun!

IMG_5408How about a little more caption fun before Summer Photo Fun, comes to an end next week? I always love the caption challenges. Hope you do, too!

What do you think the little fella (or gal!) above might be saying? I posted this photo several weeks ago in the batch where I featured the Gray Catbirds who have been frequenting my backyard this summer, but now it’s time to let you give him/her a voice.

So go ahead and share—what’s the first thing that comes to mind? And hey, thanks for playing my games with me! :)

Summer Photo Fun: Gray Catbird Beauty

IMG_5498Those of you who know me know that I love to try to capture great photos of birds. You also know that I usually try to work some of my bird photos into Summer Photo Fun at some point. Today is that point this summer.

The past couple of months I’ve really been enjoying a pair of Gray Catbirds that are frequenting my backyard feeder and birdbath. Even though they are not super colorful, their sleek gray forms accented by their black caps make them really quite beautiful. I’ve had them visit my yard in past summers, but this year they must be living close by. They are daily visitors.

So, friends, allow me to share some of the daily Gray Catbird beauty I’ve been treated to the past couple of months. Hope you enjoy the following shots. And be on the lookout—you may have some of these little guys in your own backyard!

IMG_5385Ahh, here’s the water. “Maybe if I don’t move, she won’t see me. . .”

Hope you enjoyed my beautiful Gray Catbirds!
