It’s always nice when I discover that my camera has seen more than I did when I took a shot. That has happened lately, as spring gets ready to turn to summer, when I see “Well well, the little creature seems to be building a nest!”
(Of course I am also very aware of seeing apparent competition between individuals, whether they are “conspecifics” [of the same species] or not. Spring seems to be the time for fighting as well as mating and nest-building.)
Here are three bird species that happen to be similar in size and one mammal—a chipmunk—captured in four shots.
For more photos, including several that are quite analogous to these four, please feel free to go here to my SmugMug site.
