In a bit of good natured blog banter, Joe Sweeney and I (check out his blog – https://sweeneyfit.wordpress.com/) have been passing back and forth the challenge of photographing a “rare warbler.”
Well, today I am claiming the victory! The Oxford English Dictionary defines rare as “occurring very infrequently” and this afternoon a warbler I have never seen before showed up in my backyard.
This female Prairie Warbler (at least I think that’s what it is) flitted over to the birdbath, took a quick dip, then flew off into the tree tops. I wish I could have gotten better pictures, but she was so fast I didn’t have time to fiddle with my camera settings.
Okay Joe…your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to get a picture of a rare hummingbird!
