I'll Share

Saint Augustine, Florida
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
While bird watching in my yard this mockingbird landed quite close. It let me hear every sound it could make. I think it was the Rich Little of the bird world. It swooped down and caught the bug then came back and posed for me.

That haughty mocker doesn't look like he's in a sharing mood to me. :) Splendid shot with the bonus bug. Congratulations, Dick!

Glad he's willing to share, but I think I'll pass. I prefer my food to not still be wiggling! Great photo, Dick -- a great big congratulations from up here in sunny (yes, that's right, sunny) Ohio!

Great shot of this mocking bird with the added feature of the bug in its mouth. I really enjoy them singing too...it causes me to really marvel at the wonders of nature. Congrats, Dick!
