California Towhee and milo plant

October 20, 2015 in Backyard Bird Photography by admin

The California Towhee gets seeds from a plant that grew from a milo seed, I think. He tries to grab the seed but also by shaking the stem, the seeds fall to the ground and he eats them there.IMG_9119bayliss_garden_milo_plant_california_towhee_e_raw_crop IMG_9122bayliss_garden_milo_plant_california_towhee_e_raw_crop

Mexican sage setting for hummingbird photos

October 16, 2015 in Backyard Bird Photography, Hummingbirds by admin

I thought I’d show you the are where I took the photographs, so you can see how I work. The purple Mexican sage is on the other side of the pool, with a hummingbird feeder at left; the camera is placed in front of the sage; and then I go to work. You can see my shadow in the pool in the vertical picture. IMG_3420bayliss_mexican_sage_hummingbird_feeder_e_crop IMG_3425bayliss_mexican_sage_camera_mark2 IMG_3455bayliss_mexican_sage_camera_mark2_mathew_tekulsky_shadow_e_raw IMG_3472bayliss_mexican_sage_camera_mark2_e

While photographing the hummingbirds at the Mexican sage, this butterfly flew in for a moment or two on the palo verde tree. IMG_9068bayliss_mexican_sage_painted_lady_butterfly_palo_verde_tree_e_raw_crop IMG_9069bayliss_mexican_sage_painted_lady_butterfly_palo_verde_tree_e_raw_crop
