Life butts...part one...

Of course, the ONLY shot in focus is a rump shot...go figure...It's a Purple Gallinule by the way...

Maybe you've noticed I haven't posted much lately. Maybe you're happy because of that fact. Well, tough, I'm back in business again! The computer is back together, and yes, the wires are sorted out. Wise guys...I have lost a few files of photos somewhere in cyberspace, oh well. I've also come across a number that I never labeled, so over the winter I may post some "Lost and Founds."

In the meantime, I am going to share, whether you like it or not, our life birds of 2009...and maybe even a few from the front...

The only shot that came out of the White-winged Dove is this one on a feeder.
I made the others go away...DELETE,DELETE,DELETE!

This Painted Bunting was the reason we went to Florida in January...besides no snow there.
I'm not sure whether he was flashing me or trying to sell me a Rolex in this shot.

Yep, Mottled Ducks, very motley.

This may be my favorite butt of 2009.
Even this Limpkin is trying to bend around to see his own fantastic fanny!

As you can tell, we started off the year with a bang in Florida. What a place to visit in the winter to see birds, so many, so big and so patient!

I have to give special thanks to our birdin' buddies, Norma and Lloyd for spending some time with us on our visit and showing us the choice birding spots!
