Wildlife photo- September

This is a thumb sized frog I discovered at a pond on the south-side of the city.  He was hiding in the short grass quite successfully until I nearly stepped on him as I was taking a photo of a bird in the pond.  He was as startled as I and froze.  I picked him up but he jumped out of my hand onto my camera bag, where he stayed long enough for me to get this photo.   I had to lie down on my belly to get it.  He is so cute, how could I resist?

This week in pictures

Well it is that time of year again and fall migration is well underway, while the leaves change color and the weather cools down somewhat.  Who knew time could move so quickly.  Those who love birds are out as often as time allows, trying to capture as many glimpses or photos of birds as possible.  Hopefully some of us will also discover a new bird or two to add to the life list.  The following photos represent just a few of the birds I have seen so far this season.

Ovenbird

Orange crowned warbler
Acadian Flycatcher

Wilson's warbler
