Flight⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _______________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It wasn’t easy to focus on this one but after many attempts I managed to do it. I also tried MF but the depth of field was so thin everything was out of focus. These are the aspects of photography in back light but when you finally capture a bird, you get a beautiful sun lit feathers as here :)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #planetbirds #birds_adored #birds_private #bird_brilliance #wildlife #wildlifephotography #birdphotography #best_birds_of_world #best_birds_of_ig #birdfreaks #ig_birds_perfection #birds_captures #birds_perfection #bb_of_ig #naturephotography #fotografiaprzyrodnicza #thebirdingsquad #wildlife_inspired #naturyst #backyardbirds #WildlifeIG #eye_spy_birds #birdwatching #lasypanstwowe #nuts_about_birds #igscwildlife #splendid_nature #splendid_animals #starling

Few birds have shown such a remarkable recovery from hard times as Bald Eagles. Their numbers plummeted during the DDT era, when they ate fish and birds full of by-products of that pesticide, concentrating them in their own tissues. These chemicals interfered with calcium metabolism, so eggshells became increasingly thin over time until the eggs were being crushed beneath the weight of the incubating bird. With the banning of DDT in 1972, eagle populations initially rebounded slowly and then began to grow rapidly. Reduced to about five hundred pairs in the Lower 48 in 1972, there are now more than ten thousand pairs. . . . . #ilcp_photographers #nanpapix #birds #wildlife #nature #eagle #wildlifephotography #birdphotography #wildlife_perfection #snap_wildlife #photooftheday #animals #instagram #allnatureshots #birdsofinstagram #your_best_birds #wildlifeplanet #baldeagle #birdlovers #birdwatching #raptors #birdextreme #birdfreaks #birdstagram #ig_birds #patriot #pocketbirds #nuts_about_birds #yourshotphotographer #america

We're excited to host a new #AudubonTakeover featuring @CanonUSA Explorer of Light Darrell Gullin! The Explorers of Light program was created to celebrate the work of photographers. For over 2 decades, Explorers have been inspiring and educating photographers of all levels. ⠀ Darrell became interested in photography 36 years ago when he noticed his manager’s photography hanging on the walls. Once Darrell picked up the camera he was hooked, and the first subjects that caught his eye were birds. ⠀ ⠀ American Kestrel.

Probably the most common bird we seen throughout Cuba was this Yellow-faced Grassquit. Even though super common and very wide spread, still so very beautiful and its facial markings were oh so brilliantly sculpted . Most days we overlooked this beauty and I shouldn’t have really done that after seeing this beauty shine in the bright light ☀️. Shot was taken in Artemisa, Cuba 🇨🇺

This Black­-capped Chickadee is nibbling on one of its favorite foods, a sunflower seed. These small passerines are frequent visitors to backyard bird feeders in the northern US and Canada. After grabbing a single seed, they fly to a nearby branch where they open the husk and eat the nutritious kernel. Black­-capped Chickadees also enjoy peanuts, suet, and mealworms to supplement their diet of mostly insects, berries, and wild seeds. . . . . . . #blackcappedchickadee #chickadee #cutebird #birdeating #birds #backyardbirds #backyardbirding #feederbirds #birdphotography #birdshots #birdvideo #wildlife #naturevideo #naturebirds #birdoftheweek #birdsinmotion #wingsinnature

Look at those legs ! I caught this hawk launching himself off what seems a very tiny perch for such a big bird.

Starting a new series of photos of this swan in the morning light. Finding it hard to get the lighting balance just right but will do my best. #muteswan #oakvillephotography #joshuascreek #birdphotography #birdwatchingphotography

Umbrella Cockatoo Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chrodata Class: Aves Order: Psittaciformes Family: Cacatuidae Genus: Cacatua Species: C. alba Peaches is a 16 year old Umbrella Cockatoo that was rescued during Hurricane Harvey. He is one of 4 birds that made their way over to @birdslivesmatter2 where they are now recovering and living their best life. I have been lucky enough to photograph a variety of animals, but birds always surprise me. Their personality will shine be it good or bad, but they are some of the most unique animals on the planet. Peaches was curious/unsure about the lights at first, but after about 3 clicks he was full on blue steel for us. I am looking forward to our next adventure with these birds later on this year.

35. Piden (Pardirallus sanguinolentus), Plumbeous Rail. Orden: Gruiformes Familia: Rallidae En todo el territorio nacional, aunque con tres razas distintivas, una del extremo norte, una de la zona austral, y otra que habita ampliamente la zona centro sur de Chile. Habita en humedales, matorrales o pastizales húmedos, en totoras o juncales. Grande y voluminoso, normalmente se encuentra merodeando entre la densa vegetación en busca de alguna lombriz u otro insecto. Ave difícil de confundir, por su forma compacta, sus patas largas rojizas, su pico alargado y curvado color verdoso, y su cola corta. El juvenil es de tonos pardos con color beige en la zona ventral, cabeza y cuello. Estado de conservación: Preocupación menor.
