Wonderfully captured, on every angle. Have a great weekend Tim.
Wow! I’ve never one.
Sorry: seen one.
So he has his meal…. 😉
Wow! Fantastic shots!!
You’re welcome, Tim.
Fast and beautiful little one!💕
[…] Backlit Battle […]
Breakfast! Or lunch… Wonderful captures!
Dinner. Thanks, Dale.
What an incredible colourful bird, beautifully captured!
Poor creature, didn’t realize this wasp his last moment.
Great series, Tim ~ well done!
That wasp is giving a fight though it doesn’t seem to stand a chance.
It didn’t stand a chance. I was really surprised to see the bird had nabbed a wasp. Thanks, Marina.
It seems that quite a few birds eat them. Hmmm I wonder if Nicole Kidman has tried them! 🤣
They might be quite tasty with a bit of a sting to them!😜
He sure did! Always hard to get those backlit shots right, especially when the subject is so colorful. The summer’s are just now showing up around here – still waiting on the Scarlet Tanagers to make their way up.
I have seen the yellow ones yet. They usually show up before the orange Tanagers. Thanks, Brian.
These are beautiful little birds. Nice shots!
Those are beautiful captures, Tim. Wasp down the hatch!
I didn’t know they ate wasps. Surprising. Thanks, Lavinia.
They must have the technique down for disabling the wasp before it can sting them
It beat it against the tree for quite awhile.
I’m feeding Blue and she’s playing with her rat. Drives me crazy when she plays with her food.
I have never seen one before. What a lovely bird! Thanks so much for sharing!
They are beautiful. Thanks, Nancy.
Gorgeous bird! Of course I have never seen one of those.
So… he ate the wasp? Uch! xo
He did. He thought it was yummy with a little sting to it. Thanks, Resa.
Sort of like chilies?
Wow! Such a cool set of images.
Thank you for sharing this, it is great how you caught a frame by frame, it is like watching it live.
Gorgeous bird Tim, who doesn’t mind posing for the camera ..
