Superbowl Sunday was a great photography day at Mayberry Farms. The sun was good and the birds were cooperative. These pelicans took off from the pasture next door.
The egret passed by close enough to capture him in flight.
Lola was pumped up and chased everything that moved.
Mallards were hard to see until they jumped up – often close by.
Bitterns were easy to find, but impossible to see on the ground.
White-front geese were using the pasture.
Lola finally got this pheasant up and she was quite animated.
This spoony got up real close.
Cinnamin teal and spoonies were hanging out together in the open water.
This kite held onto a branch for dear life in the stiff breeze
This pelican floated by pretty close.
As I prepared to leave this shrike caught the last rays of afternoon sun.
