This week’s Monochrome Madness 2 I selected an image from a recent day I spent birding in the Pacific Flyway.  The Pacific Flyway is a section of CA. that is part of the Winter migration path used by birds fleeing the cold months in the Winter.

These are Black-necked Stilts, and Long billed Dowagers foraging for food.

I was trying out the Tamron 150-600mm super telephoto lens this week-end for the extra reach which was nice to have, but I won’t be saying much about the lens because I wasn’t able to use it as much as I had hoped. We had rain come in which kept me indoors the following day instead of out photographing birds.  I won’t complain too much since we need all the rain we can get. 🙂

I’m really behind reading blog posts, but am catching up ever so slowly.

More to come…



  1. I really like this one. At first glance I thought it was a sandwich of two different images.

    • Merci beaucoup Cher Robert! J’adore les Black-necked Stilts. Ils ont tres elegant en mon avis.

  2. I woke up in the middle of the night and saw this picture and had to comment I love it, a wonderful photo!

  3. This is just gorgeous!

  4. Beautiful :-). Lovely composition. The silveriness of the water is dreamy. And everything looks so delicate, especially the Black-necked Stilts.

  5. Wow, fantastic!!

  6. I think this is one of your best~just a wonderful composition.

A penny for your thoughts...
