This week we are sharing photos of birds that are hunted/consumed. I do eat meat but I could never hunt and I am glad my husband doesn’t either. I understand that hunting is needed for certain types of animals like deer whose populations can get too large but I am glad there are others who take care of this as it would be too difficult for me to do.
This sweet dove made a nest on our front door wreath not once but twice this past spring. Her mate was always nearby.
I have always been a “backyard” photographer but even more now than ever. These photos were taken at or near my home in 2020.
The first one was taken in March. Our neighbor’s son had a wedding planned in March but it had to be altered. They ended up having a very small ceremony in their yard. We live one door down so we were able to go out on the deck and cheer them on. I also pulled out my long lens and played paparazzi. (I didn’t include pictures of the happy couple because I did not ask permission to post).
On a walk one morning I decided to snap this photo of a rose trying to “escape” it’s back yard.
We are also lucky to have lots of birds, bugs and other critters to keep us entertained.
Last year we travelled to Florida and went to an alligator farm. The most interesting part was that there was a bird sanctuary. The birds seemed happy to live amongst the alligators. Here are a couple of bird photos from that visit that we do not have in our area.
For this week’s challenge, we are invited by Ana – https://anvicaphotos.wordpress.com/posts/ – to share photos depicting this theme. I have to admit that I do not get up often for sunrises. Here are a few of my favorites:
I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
