Recently I’ve been making an effort to get out at the crack of dawn capture the sunrise. In many ways it’s easier at the moment, because the sun rises so late (around 7am). In many other ways, it’s extremely difficult. My bed is warm, and I like them warm. Outside is not warm.
While I’m pretty happy with some of the sunrise photos that I have taken, I also realise it’s best to not bore you all with the same subject week after week. So this week My Sunday Photo is focussed some of the wildlife that I recently spotted – some rather cute tiny birds.
I’m almost certain that the first bird is a female fair wren. There was a brilliant-blue male hovering around the area, but he was scared off by a garbage truck before I could get my camera out. This tiny female was a bit bolder, and she stuck about for the photo shoot.
I have no idea what these other birds are. They are about the same size as the fairy wren. They look similar too, but definitely not the same. Bonus points to anyone who can identify them for me!
Okay, I said no more boring sunrises, but this last photo was taken well after sunrise, so technically it’s just a landscape photo. I quite like the atmosphere of this shot, especially with the lingering fog around the base of the cliffs. The ocean was pretty angry that morning too, although I’m not sure it really comes across in this photo.
As always on a Sunday, I’m linked up to the excellent #MySundayPhoto linky. It’s hosted by Darren Coleshill on the website Photalife. I highly recommend you click on the link (or the badge below) and check out everyone’s photos.
