I wasn’t quick enough to capture this bird catching the bug, but was quick enough to capture him before he ate it.

Learn something new every day. Contre-jour (French for “against daylight”) is a photographic technique in which the camera is pointing directly toward a source of light. It produces backlighting of the subject. This effect usually hides details, causes a stronger contrast between light and dark, creates silhouettes and emphasizes lines and shapes.

Early each morning now the gila woodpeckers come to rob the hummingbird feeders.
This one either does not quite understand how to get to the nectar, or maybe he is eating the ants that ended up in in the ant moat.

The female oriole was back again this morning, drinking from the hummingbird feeder.
She is really quite pretty. This is the first year I have ever seen one of these come into the yard.
I wonder if she has a boyfriend. :)
