Joys of Bird Photography

I’d like to introduce my neighbor, the desert cardinal, officially Pyrrhuloxia.  Not the most cooperative photo subject.  And when he does look at the camera, I think he isn’t pleased.

Contrail Convergence

After a 2 month absence, it’s time to post a photograph.  Remind myself it doesn’t have to be perfect, just has to be something that caught my attention.  So without any conspiracy theories, please, here is my offering.  Note:  I have a flight tracker app on my phone.  It tells me that these 3 flights (top to bottom) are Ontario CA to Dallas; private plane; and Chihuahua to Denver.  Don’t know why but it makes me happy to know.
