Shots from August 1st and August 4th

This is a house finch with beautiful red coloring

A yellow/brownish-orange gaillardia

A honeybee on a flower. I have no idea what kind of flower this is...

A seagull flying by - got this shot in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

This Great Blue Heron was not too happy with me. Shot him at dusk with my D300s at ISO 2000 and onboard flash at 1/60th of a second.

Further: DO NOT EVER DO THIS...The rods in the heron's eyes are very sensitive. They are also nocturnal feeders. The heron was just extremely lucky that it wasn't temporarily blinded...and while trying to fly off and clearing its vision; it could have very well flown into a tree of which there were many. So please chalk this up to stupidity in the heat of the moment and do not attempt to copy the technique of this shot. Please be cognizant of the feeding habits and nocturnal habits of the animals you track. This is not something that a birder or a nature-loving wildlife photographer should ever do.

More later when I have an opportunity to edit more of my shots.
