Capture What Counts Photography

Day 360 – First Flight

This baby bird is about to take his first flight…following his siblings that have just left the nest.  The nest is in a hanging basket at our friend Nancy’s house.  So cute!

  1. Great shot, Bonnie. Hope he/she had better luck than some of the birds in our yard. They inevitably encounter the pool! 😦

  5. Bonnie, you are lucky to capture this bird. Our nest was on a second floor window and I scared the mom away each time I tried to photograph, so I left her alone, it was an experience to see. This is a great photo. How special.
