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.

Pretty butterfly on pretty ironweed, my favorite wildflower of late summer/early autumn. Nice.

Great shots!

But isn't there a part of you that wishes you had done Chet Baker pulling on a leash?
