Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/320s, f/3.5, ISO 400, focal length 4.5mm; AUTO setting

I found a bird flying eastward in this dilapidated piece of wood on a wall in Cedar Key, Florida, USA. Many of the building facades there are old and weathered wood.

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.

  • Thanks, Susana! I thought it was a different kind of bird, but now I see it’s coming in for a landing on that brownish landing strip!
