Crouching Tiger, Hidden Birds
This evening the birds were active around the farm, but they seemed to be completely NOT in the mood to be photographed. Indigo bunting, blue-winged warbler, white-eyed vireo, Carolina wren, ruby-throated hummingbird, chipping sparrow--all were camera shy in the orange wash of the evening's sunset.
So I found a calmer, more photogenic subject: a massive tiger swallowtail that was nectaring on some ironweed along the edge of the meadow.
Here are just a few of the frames I burned.
