I just wanted to post a few images I got last week on a resaca (oxbow) near Brownsville. It seems there is always something good to photograph, even in the hottest part of the summer. I was surprised that none of these birds showed serious signs of molting.
Remember, you can click on an image to enlarge and sharpen it. Clicking on the right edge of a photo will show you how to advance to the next image.
Ducks like to perch and remain motionless for long periods but photographer patience will pay off. The ducks have to stretch or fly every little while.
I waited two hours for a green kingfisher to fly on to this perch. The nice head tilt came while she was looking upward for avian predators.
Grebes have to stretch, shake off excess water, and move around. They don’t seem to have the patience for sitting and resting. That great background color is sunset light bouncing off the resaca.
