Bobolink.  The only American bird that is black underneath and white on the back.
May 25, 2006

Bobolink. The only American bird that is black underneath and white on the back.

Ottawa, Ontario. Canada

Never thought I'd get close to this bird when I first saw it perched on some wire in the distance so took some quick faraway shots for the heck of it. Then I started edging slowly toward it and was surprised that it didn't take off. OK I thought, maybe I have a chance to get close.

I was getting closer with each move that I made....slow, smooth steps so as not to panic the bird. Thought I had a decent chance of getting to within frame filling range until my monopod went down into the ground just a tad too heavy on one particular move and knew instinctively the bird would take off....and it actually did, take off.


Cloned out a few distracting items for presentation purposes.


other sizes: small medium original
