Bird on a Wire

Carmi's "Thematic Photographic 338 is Straight lines. Here's Mr. Cardinal:

A plane near Dulles Airport:

Bambi on the Washington & Old Dominion Trail:


For Wild Bird Wednesday 152 and Nature Notes 317, I have a finch. He might be the reddest one I've ever seen, but still a house finch I suppose.

Great photos! That red finch is giving the cardinal a run for his money today.

Andy said...

That is a very red House Finch!

Gilly said...

I was sure I had left a comment! Yes, the pitch and putt course is right by our fence and gate. And we have a large cache of gold balls swung into the garden!

Housefinch? Must go and look that little red one up!

Bird and animal shots always rate highly with me - after dogs that is. I've seen a cardinal in MI but not a red finch yet.

What a fun critter fix here today! I'm going to find one more straight line post too....still savoring the sights around town! Great shots!

great shots :)

Sharon Wagner said...

The 2nd photo is my favorite. Great lines!

Jim H. said...

Never seen such a finch before. Great. And good use of straight line theme.

Phil Slade said...

Yes, that House Finch is just so intensely Red. I'm guessing it's the height of the breeding season when he has to look his best for his wife?

Marie C said...

Yes, your finch is VERY red! Great straight line theme shots too.

Put a bird on it!

Have a Wonderful Day!

Beautiful red finch!!
Love the deer on the trail too.

And Dulles...that is the best airport near D. C. in my opinion.

Debbie said...

nice captures....we have some saggy, baggy wires around these parts!!!

I have flown in and out of Dulles myself. Cute deer you have. I don't see them much here until winter and they are looking for food. Beautiful color on the finch. Thank you for linking into Nature Notes.... Michelle

I love this series: The aircraft picture got me especially. Amazing timing...and so close to home, as I'm always lifting my lens to the sky despite the fact that it makes me ridiculously dizzy.

I've posted the new theme, and I think you'll have plenty to weigh in with this week. I always enjoy how you take a theme and make it a journey.
