Confrontation!

As I was photographing this Great Kiskadee on the Laguna Seca Ranch, a Golden-fronted Woodpecker landed on the dead snag the kiskadee had been using as a fishing spot. When the kiskadee returned and touched down on its perch, the woodpecker didn’t want the company. The wet kiskadee had to fly off to find another place to dry.

Bath Splash!

I guided two photographers at the Laguna Seca Ranch yesterday. The afternoon was mostly cloudy so I didn’t expect to take action shots, but a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher suddenly appeared on a dead snag over the ranch pond. Suspecting what he was about to do, I made a quick camera adjustment (to 1/2500 second) and captured photos of him as he flew up from his bath-on-the-fly. What a thrill it was to see the results!20150413_LSR_4075
