A man and his camera.

As Karen’s husband, one of the things I’m expected to do is get pictures for her of all sorts of things and places. Now that kind of assignment is much more exciting than cleaning the bathroom, kitchen, or running after the kittens. If you know what I mean.

In the last two days, I have had an assignment a day. Yesterday, go back and look and you will see my shot of Sunflowers. The second one, today was of a bird outside our front window. Karen wanted to know what it was, so she suggested that I take a picture and that way she would have a picture to use as she looked it up in her bird book.

Look at the picture, one of three, it’s dark. Might have helped if I had used a compact flash. Now if I really think about it, had I used any flash, I would not have been able to take 3 shots, mostly likely just the one.

But, and this is important, it might have given the picture the complete contrast needed to figure out what kind of bird it was. Any ideas, Bird Watchers?

    Around here that would be an immature grackle, but haven’t a clue for AZ.

    I still suspect immature something, because the tail is short and speckles make things hard to identify. Especially this time of year. Look again later in the summer.
