Oregon Junco 2

The Oregon Junco.  I see these guys in Malibu, CA all the time.  Being from Oregon, I have a special place in my heart for them.  Last week I was visiting family in Oregon and got to see some in their true habitat.  Pretty little things…

One of Many

One of my many blessings…is the ability to unwind at the end of the day photographing beach life.

Patience

These little guys are bright and shiny and pretty and really hard to get close to.  They prefer to be way up high in the eucalyptus trees.

Flight School

Today is the first day of flight school for this baby hummingbird.  He isn’t so sure he’s ready yet!

Baby hummingbird is hesitant to fly for the first time.
