Lens Artists Photo Challenge # 220 – One Subject Three Ways

For this challenge Patti asks us to show one subject three ways.

Every time I drive to and from my neighborhood I pass a tree I call the bird tree because I often see birds perched on its dead branches. I’ve chosen three images of the tree. All were taken on the same day.

The image above is a recent photo of the tree will Roseate Spoonbills and a Great Egret. The image below was taken with a zoom lens for a closer look. The third image is cropped to show only the Roseate Spoonbill.

  1. You’ve featured my favorite bird Beth – we only started seeing them a few years ago thanks to climate change. They are very frequent visitors but they still return to Florida (so far) to nest and have their chicks. Their pink feathers and eyes are so exquisite! Love the image of the rosie all by her/himself on the tree. That’s definitely meant to be framed and hung!

    1. Tina, thank you! The Spoonbills were in our area for several days about a month ago. The day I took these photos there were five in this tree and some other trees near it. There have been reports of them nesting a few miles from here but I’ve never seen them.
      I still get excited whenever I see a Spoonbill here. They started showing up several years ago but it was usually only one or two birds at a time.

    1. Judy, thank you! We used to have to travel to Florida or the Texas Gulf Coast to see Roseate Spoonbills. A few years ago they started coming here in the warmer months. This year I saw more than ever. I still get excited when I see them here.
