I have accepted the #challengeonnaturephotography

Day 1 of the #challengeonnaturephotography

Day 1 of the #challengeonnaturephotography

One of the many latest things on Facebook these days is the Challenge on Nature Photography. Oh, I’m sorry. This is 2015. I mean the #challengeonnaturephotography

I was challenged by my friend David Winston, the landscaper/photographer of Cove Island Wildlife Sanctuary fame. The challenge is put up a different nature photograph for seven days and nominate a different person to do the same. Coming up with seven nature photographs will be a breeze. Can I come up with seven Facebook friends who would accept the challenge. Do you want to be challenged? Let me know and nominate you. Above is my first contribution to the Challen … sorry, to the #challengeonnaturephotography

You can look on Twitter using the hashtag search #challengeonnaturephotography for other challenge-takers throughout the world. I’m happy to be part of it and thank David for his nomination.

The warblers were there for a total of three days. On day one it was one Pine Warbler, on day two it was three and on day three it was back to only one. At one point all three landed on the feeder at once. From the photo above, you can tell they didn’t like sharing.

I posted some photos last week of Pine Warblers that visited my feeders. It was a nice sighting because warblers typically do not visit feeders. If you do get lucky enough to have warblers visit your feeding station, it’s usually Pine Warblers in the fall. I was fortunate enough to have three visit this fall. To complement those photos, here are some more … Continue reading

Never at any of my former homes where I’ve maintained birdfeeders had I seen a warbler at the feeder. A few weeks at Merganser Lake and today alone I had three.
