Michael and I decided we wanted to go for a nice walk around LSU Lakes. It's one of my favorite places to go for nature photography and hiking. I had no idea we would see so many birds! Michael was very good about finding them for me and being quiet while pointing them out. As you can see, I hit the jackpot!
|This American Robin let me get very close while he foraged on the ground. I got about 30 photos and could have taken more, but I actually grew bored. Towards the end I was lying on the ground for a different perspective.|
|My sweet, adoring husband helped me identify this one using our bird book. It's a Green Heron! I didn't even know such a bird existed. If only I had that 400mm lens. :/|
|Michael going down to the water's edge.|
|Still trying to identify this one. Any clue?|
|Hairy Woodpecker, female|
|Hairy Woodpecker, male|
|Around the lake are beautiful, expensive homes. This particular one had a fleur-de-lis fence in front of it.|
