Early fox!

One of my best pictures of a mature fox in the sun! I had all the time in the world to get this picture.

Black-throated blue warbler, male.

I took this picture in mid-May as the migration of birds was at its peak. I was so happy to see this bird and was able over several days to get better pictures until i took this picture in a isolated area of the garden.

Red-wing blackbird, female.

It is rare that I take pictures of red-wing blackbirds but this female was nicely positioned for me. Taken in mid-May.

The pileated woodpecker.

A hard bird to see in the city. I was very lucky to see this bird in the garden, and only the second time ever that I have seen it. It flew out of nowhere and went straight to the tree near me. Unfortunately it was not always in the sunlight.

The scarlet tanager.

During late April and early May the migration season of birds generally ends, and we had a lot of rare birds in the garden. Most notably was an extraordinary bird called the scarlet tanager. i was super happy to see it high up in some trees eating insects.

Tulips!

For me May will always be the month of tulips, and this past May was no exception. Love the colors on this picture.

Family portrait.

This picture was taken in early May. The sun was shining and the foxes were out taking the sun, perfect for a group photo!

Turkeys!

I was very surprised of seeing a turkey in the garden, this happening in mid-April this year. It was in a tree and was spooked by another photographer. It landed only a few feet away from me. It was only later that I noticed that it was missing the right foot. I followed cautiously the bird until it left the area.

Little foxes at the garden!

Once again an army of small foxes have appeared in the garden, 9 to be exact, in two different locations. This little fellow was seen in an area perfect for taking pictures, out in the sun. Love those blue eyes!

Butterflies again go free!

Once again we had the exhibition of butterflies going free in a greenhouse. It was fantastic and I was there on the first day. For once i saw many new species.
