Dogwood

These are such beautiful trees.

Autumn's reds with the berries bring all the birdies! Do you know what kind of birdie that might be, Eve?

Eve said...

Hi Debi!! The sun is out! What a night last night!!! Wild storms.
I think that is an Eastern Phoebe. The other guess is an Eastern Wood-pewee. I have both in the woods here.
Hope your having a great day!

Ah, the colors of Autumn. There is always a magic each season but there's something so beautiful about the season between summer and winter.
Gorgeous photos!! What kind of camera do you use?

Hey Evie,

Fabulous Bokeh in these two shots.

Beautiful shots Eve! Autumn is really here. I saw a bird that looked very similar to this one the other day, is it a phoebe? I haven't the chance to check myself. Cute little bird ^_^

Dogwoods are one of my favorite trees. They are not guaranteed here in Maine, I will just have to enjoy yours Eve.

Eve said...

Thanks farmlady! I agree. I have a Canon 5D and was using a canon 100-400mm lens.

Thanks Roy. I think it's a combination of the long lens, a fairly wide open aperture and that I took both photos through a window! And not even the same window!

Thank you Leeloo's mum! I believe that is an Eastern Phoebe. They are sweet.

Hi Julie. I've got TONS of them!!! Well, you know!

Yes, I miss the Red Buds and Dogwoods of Tennessee. : )

Karen Gifford said...

Miss you Eve, Beautiful Photos as usual... been so busy with school I haven't had time for photography!

Lovely, you photos inspire me as always!!!! Hope you all are happy and healthy!!

Dogwoods are always so pretty in the fall and spring both. That is why I hated when my dogwood by the front door died, but hopefully the little one will grow big soon. Love the shot of the bird in the little "window" of light.

Eve, the second photo, awesome. The birds have stripped all the berries from our dogwoods. It was fun to watch them enjoy. I think the squirrels gave them a run for their money. I didn't even think squirrels ate the berries on dogwoods. But we have never had this many and time to watch.

I can't remember from your previous posts, do you have any redbud?

Eve said...

Hi Steve! I can't wait to see mine bloom this spring, I missed it this year!

Hi Karen! I miss you too, good luck with school, work hard!

Thanks Mary. I'm a little worried about my dogwoods here. As you can see I'm getting some dying back. I don't know much about them so I guess I'll have to study up.

Hi RR! Yes I have a number of Redbud. I didn't get to see them bloom here this spring either. I can't wait to see them bloom.

very pretty, I love the atmosphere of these photos

Leeloo's mum said...

So it IS an eastern phoebe, awesome!! It looks very similar to the one I photographed the other day, if we both think it's an eastern phoebe, then it must be, hehe. I'm not the greatest when it comes to identifying flycatchers (and sandpipers) so I'm happy I got it right, heehee :)

Hi Eve- Dogwoods are one of my favorite trees too. I've noticed that the birds will usually eat the Dogwood berries late into the season when almost all other food sources are gone. But when they do start eating them- the berries disappear pretty quickly. Fall in the Sand Mountain region is usually spectacular- I am looking forward to seeing your photos of it!

What a change for you...if you were still in NY you would be seeing the cold nights and signs of the big change in those fall colors...but now that you are further south you get to see all the warblers we can't see anymore..the beautiful dogwood leaves turning and an eastern phoebee...just sitting there waiting for you to take its pic..how nice!! Jealous here!! ;-)

You are very lucky to have Dogwood - they do not grow well in my soil and the birds love them so (not to mention how good they birds look on them!!
