Let me begin by thanking you all for all the warm compliments on my photos the last several days. I have tried to comment on some of yours as well, but slow internet and busy vacation days make it hard to get to everyone right now.
This is my first ever photo of a meadowlark. They are so skiddish at times that you can't get close enough to capture the image. I have several photos of him singing which I hope to share later . Picture this...this is how I captured this image. We're riding down a dusty, Florida back road in the "country" and there he is down the way on a fence post. I open my door and we crawl slowly towards the gorgeous guy. Bob stops the car at a reasonable distance and I prop my lens between the door frame and the car frame just above the hinge (more-less)...what a great image stabilitzer (lol) and a good blind too , it seems. I'm happy...isn't he a beauty?
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND...AND MANY THANKS AGAIN FOR STOPPING BY ALL THESE DAYS...
