2013 Project 365

Project 365/227 – All Aflutter


I must admit, I believe I’m suffering from bird AD&D. There’s not a flutter in a tree that doesn’t cause me to stop in my tracks and look. What could it be? Is it something yellow? Is it perhaps blue?


With a camera, I’m able to capture these fleeting movements and freeze the motion. True magic happening right before my eyes.


I fell into birding and wildlife photography entirely by accident. Blame it on the eagles. It’s all their fault. Can’t wait to see them again this winter. In the meantime, let’s enjoy the birds of summer.


Tonight’s the night for my live interview with PhotoCoach Pro and Shutterbug Excursions. For more details, see my previous post here:


Hope to hear you there!


There is nothing holier in this life of ours than the first consciousness of love, the first fluttering of its silken wings.

    • You are so sweet, and such a generous compliment. Not sure if you made it last night, I was last, so it was well into an hour before they got to me. A lot of people had dropped out by then. 😦 It was fun though!

  1. Do not ever stop suffering from it. Outstanding photographs and I for one get giddy when you show up in my reader. More. x

  2. I really like the shot of the goldfinch on the coneflower and the one of the hummingbird, but they are all wonderful shots. I started photographing birds last fall when the insects and flowers disappeared and I can testify to the fact that it can become addictive.

  3. You birds, me wildflowers, which have been rare here the last three years in drought. Birds just fill the gap between flowers for me. Not that I don’t like them, obviously I do, I take enough photos of them. You take awesome bird photos Emily.

  4. Your goldfinch and hummingbird are lovely! I draw/paint through the alphabet, and I’m wondering if I have your permission to draw these photos for my blog. Of course, I’d give you credit, and post a link to your blog.
