Peregrine falcon with a beak full of feathers. It's just a pain when that happens. It is also in a place where it is warm. Back in Toronto we are just in the beginning of a little winter snow event. A few months to spring...

We love photographing hummingbirds, and one of the best ways to do that is to hang out around established feeders that will attract them to you. The birds come to the feeders, and you can predict exactly where they will be, eliminating a lot of the chase. Getting an "au naturel" shot of a hummingbird is quite a bit more challenging, but there's a lot to be said for the thrill of the hunt, too. That's part of the reason we love this photo of this Black-crested Coquette so much. (The other part is definitely that cute, wispy crest on the top of his head! 😊) We found him checking out some flowers in a garden near Braulio Carrillo National Park, and we had to be patient as we tried our best to train our lens on the quick-moving bird as he darted about foraging from flower to flower. Luckily, hummingbirds are creatures of habit and frequently return to the same bush over and over again. We waited patiently as he flew about making his rounds, but he would always come back eventually, giving us several opportunities to finally get the shot.
Dave Shaffer was surprised to see a group of Pine Grosbeaks as he looked out the window from his home in Wisconson. He threw on a coat, grabbed his camera and tripod, and headed outside into the 10° below zero weather to capture this beautiful image. ⠀
Dave's photo earned a spot on the 2018 #AudubonPhotographyAwards top 100 list.⠀
