Birds From Behind
I know it’s dangerous to title a post “Birds From Behind” during “Bird Love Week” but I have to admit… it’s kind of the point. I’m getting swept up and unduly influenced by duck anatomy and countless pictures of avian copulation. But in all seriousness, this post is actually about those moments that seem to get away… but don’t. Just because a bird passes you by doesn’t mean you lose the shot. Some lovely things can happen when you take [photos of] birds from behind.

I’d like to take a quick moment to address all the San Francisco Bay Area readers of 10,000 Birds. If you are interested in volunteering for a long-standing, well respected, non-profit, raptor relevant organization that has both Hawk Watching and Banding programs, visit the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory’s volunteer page HERE. The meetings for new volunteers happen next week!
Everyday Sunshine will be back in a couple of weeks to celebrate the beauty in the commonplace… thanks for tuning in.
