Eye Candy

It has been a wonderful spring for warblers around my yard.  I am so thankful for making this spot of land our home 15 years ago.  Another beauty (in the garden)  this springtime was this tree peony below, which gave me about 12 large fragrant blooms!

Tree Swallows in flight

This whole spring I have been really focused on the swallows.   The way they dart around for insects (thank goodness all that rain is gone) and just the way they fly in general.  My challenge also is to photography them in as many different positions as I can while in flight, not an easy thing to do!  I have a nesting pair, of swallows, in one of my bluebird boxes.  Next door to them is another box that has a male bluebird hanging around it.  I have not seen a female yet, let's just hope one comes along. 
I hope to be posting a few shots I have taken of the warblers that have been around the house lately.  Because I have been shooting camera RAW the processing takes more time at the computer, I would rather be outside shooting when the birds are around, not inside in front of a computer!  So that is really why I have not been posting as much as I want.  Please check back sooner than later.
