All along the edge of the swamps Phoebes dart. I think we must be their winter migration destination. One day I look and they are everywhere.
Photographing small birds is not what I do, they try my patience.
However, this bird usually has a pattern. They sit in a low tree branch, quickly drop to the swamp surface for an insect, land on a second low branch. Back and forth to the same spots.
When I see the routine, I stop and wait for a few minutes. Some times I’m able to get a shot or two.

Background complements this lovely bird!
That is the shades and colors of the swamp. Thanks.
Nice series of an adorable bird with lovely bokeh coloring!
Thank you. Sun, or lack of here, on the swamps water makes for a nice background.
