A quick walk near the bay this evening was a welcome change. It is summer and the juveniles are all out of their nests exploring their wonderful world. They still don't know much about man I presume, so when I approached this young barn swallow, all it did was take a casual look at me and sit peacefully on that piece of wood. Of course, I made sure of not getting too close to the little fellow to avoid scaring it which could attract the attention of a patrolling raptor.

American Avocets - scratching their necks

Brown-headed cowbird. They forage around the cattle, hence that name. :)

i simply love the background in the second and the third pics.

It just amazes me how you can capture a birds personality! Very nice photos.
Premnath Kudvapremkudva on June 9th, 2006 05:16 am (UTC)
That is because the birds pose for him. Which is totally unfair. In my case I am unable to photograph a crow even, all I have to do is think "oh look at all those birds in the garden, let me get my camera..." and the birds are gone.

Whereas for Yathin, they'll come to him and beg him to take their photos;-)

Ah Ha! I knew Yathin had a secret! I am like you....the birds see me coming and fly away.

I told you...birds are beautiful...i told you :D

The blue waters in the second photograph is just mesmerizing.

Can you edit out the birds from it, and say .. add a croc to the pic :D Please, please, please.
Yathinyathin on June 9th, 2006 03:51 pm (UTC)
No crocs here. This is Alligator country. ;)

Beautiful, beautiful pictures! I really need to get a camera, and not just a recording one :P
Yathinyathin on June 10th, 2006 04:12 pm (UTC)
With the beautiful country you're in - I'm surprised you don't already have one. Nature photography is probably the simplest form of photography - the nature composes the image and we just look, admire and click. :)

It is true. I have taken many pictures of places (natural or not) but almost none of animals... I am so slow that by the time I get the perfect composition the freaking animal moves!!!! I can only take perfect pictures of turtles or sloths :P

Dude nice pics. I like the second pic most.

Feel inadequate typing "wonderful" again and again...I do love coming home and getting online and thinking to myself, "Let's see what Yathin has got today."

Could you also include a short description of the where and what a la Kalyan? (Yes, I know this will add to your time...but...)

Re: ooh...
> Could you also include a short description

Sure. Will do that...

The backgrounds of your pics are getting better and better.
