I know “for the birds” is a phrase generally reserved for things that are trivial or objectionable. But why does it have to be? Im taking it back!
Now, im by no means an avid birder (Is that a word? birdist, bird… ah you get the point. Bird enthusiast). And I’m not much of a bird photographer either. However, if you spend any amount of time at a beach or park, you’re bound to run into these little guys. They are as much a part of the scenery around here as the sand and palm trees, so why not give them a guest spot.
Sure, they’re just doves, and not much to look at. But in the end, its all perception.
Here’s to you, little winged rats always stealing my potato chips at the beach.
And since i feel bad posting only one picture, heres another quick bird shot i took of a Brazilian Cardinal.(Which I had no clue that’s what it was called until someone on a forum informed me)
and some other random bird that happened to get close enough for me to snap a picture
Unfortunately, that is about the extent of my bird photography. Maybe one day ill get the gear to do some proper birding.
…until next time
