Lady Grackle by AuntDot

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/100s, f/5.6, ISO 320, focal length 41.4mm (35mm equivalent 241mm); AUTO setting

As one bird flew out of this tree, I looked up and caught this one still perched there. I think it is a female grackle, but would appreciate it if anyone could say for sure. Taken at Tuscawilla Park, Ocala, Florida, U.S.A.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    I don;t know what the bird is but it is very beautiful. Super shot. I love the soft greens too.

  • I liked them too, Morag, so I didn’t crop this any closer. Thanks so much for your lovely comment!
