About This Image

My dog Daisy and I had been wondering around in the desert and was on our way home. Well while I was waiting for her to catch up, I was standing by our neighbors little wood fence when this Cactus Wren landed right in front of me. It stayed just long enough for me to get three shots. The Cactus Wren is the Arizona State bird and really fun, you can always count on them for a photo or two.

Hi Linda and Beverly, Thanks very much for your kind comments.. Yep Linda, I always use my 75-300 when out hunting the critters, it's also on my camera most of the time.

Hi Anne and Ann :) Thank you both for your very nice comments. I'm glad you liked my little story leading up to this photo. I have been chasing the birds around here for years so maybe the grandparents, parents, and the kids now days are use to me LOL... You know Anne, the way this one came up to me I think it wanted to show off it's beauty or handsomeness, from what I've read the male and female look the same or close.

Hi - This was a really great shot, I thought. The wren looked like it knew you were and was making a great picture for you. You really showed off its beauty or it showed its beauty off to you. *g* Either way, a great picture, I thought. So clear and the accessories with it. *g* I always felt so at home in this group. I guess because my Mother taught us about birds from time we were little and she loved to take pictures. My what she would think of a camera of today. *grin*.
