Critters Prettily Lit

Thrasher BuffetedCurve-billed Thrasher

The above bird was seen at Glendale Xeriscape Garden (on a very windy day). I’ve been to quite a few locations in the past couple of weeks looking for birds but didn’t get enough good shots at any to make a post on their own so the theme here is “pretty lighting.”

  1. Indeed the lighting in each of these is wonderful, Candace.
    I love that little guy with the dragonfly. 🙂
    And that Black-Chinned Hummingbird is just gorgeous.
    Happy Sunday to you!

  2. You have such an interesting variety of wild life. All of your pictures are very good and your knowledge of them is marvelous.
