I've been out in the mountains for the past few days and just returned to replenish necessities before going out to the foothills and mountains again. This Junco greeted me at my first campsite on Friday and entertained me throughout my stay. Both male and female were gathering food and were extremely curious about my camera it seemed. Here are a few views:

First an introduction




Then a bit closer



Then up real close



Gathering food with a chip chip chip sound along the way





And finally, for now, a few humorous poses
Playfulness



Attitude

Hi Normcar,

I have been gone for a few days on the Oregon Coast. Took tons of pictures and man it takes a long time to process that many photos. I always use JPEG thankfully, could not imagine processing all those shots in RAW. I sent you a private message regarding those photos.

These Junco photos are very nice.

The second shot is great in my opinion. The framing effect from the tree really works and the color and detail of the bird is spot on. The background in the shot is really nice with just enough blur and a little detail of pine needle to add color. Thats a framer!

I also like the shot with the bugs in the mouth. Amazing to me how they can hold so many different bugs in their beak without losing the ones they already have. You did a good job on the exposure on that one with a tough light situation. Looks just a hair light but that is tough with the backlight and in the shade, you did a good job with it.

Wonderful photos as usual Normcar. Juncos are beautiful little birds. We have them here in the winter, but lose them to the north whe the summer heat moves in. You must be in Heaven on these photo trips. Woody

More great shots from the king. Do I need say anymore. Of coarse they are all great Norm especially #2. The way you have that one framed couldn't be any better. I'm sure we'llbe seeing lots more great ones from you in the next few weeks. Right. I'm having bad weather down here in Georgia. The latest hurricane is drenching us but good.

Hope you are enjoying yourself in the mountains

Thanks zoomn, woody, houston, this Junco was a fun subject. I wish you safety, Houston, in the bad weather (watching it on television), and zoomn, I have responded to your message. Great shooting.

All great shots as usual! The composition on #2 is wonderful! Like the second food shot.
That little guy has quite the mouthful!

Thanks you all for leaving a little note and checking out the photos. It's a cool bird and treated me well, he and his wife.
