We have a little bird that is always around here. It is so pretty and I just love to see it. It is hard to get very good pictures of it, it is so quick. The bird is a vermilion flycatcher. I had never seen one until we moved to Ft. McKavett. The day that I took these pictures, it was real windy. The little bird was trying to fly into the wind and was getting absolutely nowhere! He finally changed directions and flew to rest in a tree. My pictures of it are not very good, but I wanted to share them anyway. The pictures were taken with the zoom all the way up on my camera and I lose a lot of clarity when I do that, but otherwise, I wouldn't have gotten the picture at all.
Here he is flying into the wind and getting no where, which is why I was able to get a picture of him!! He's the small red colored spot in the middle of the picture! If you click on the picture, it should enlarge so that you can at least see the color of him.
And, here he is sitting in the tree. He is in the left of the picture.
