Wild Wing Wednesday



While on vacation the last two weeks at our place in Ga.  A "Painted Bunting" paid our feeder a visit. I was so thrilled to see it I quickly grabbed my camera n started shooting.  I had to zoom and it was taken through dirty glass windows. But at least you can get a glimpse of it.  Of course I had no clue what kind of bird this was...but after looking up Birds of Ga. I was able to identify it. Isn't it beautiful, so colorful!!!

I try to keep my windows spotless but the squirrels like to writer their names in it with their muddy toes so it keeps me hopping to get the window clean again. I take pictures all the time through the double panes of glass in my office where I park until mealtime.

I would love to take a picture as nice as these through my clean windows, or dirty ones.
