Great Crested Flycatcher

High atop a tree, I heard the calling of the Great Crested Flycatcher.

After realizing I was watching it, the flycatcher flew to a different tree.

  1. What a find, and what beautiful photos! Tell me again what camera and lens you are using for these photos.

  2. I’ve never seen this bird in FL! What a beauty! Your photos are excellent compositions, Donna. πŸ™‚

  3. Great job on getting that one. Another one that is either in cover or just wont stay still but when there are mosquitoes and noseeums everywhere, it’s hard to get a decent shot. We don’t see them in Jacksonville until late spring / early summer.

  4. You did a great job of capturing that beautiful tapestry of green, blue, reds and gold in that last photo. What a gift it is to be presented by our Creator with such a wonderful palette of colors in nature to capture in our art! Just a simple thing like this shows His love for us… “Now as it happened, Israel loved Joseph… So one day Jacob gave him a special giftβ€”a brightly colored coat of many colors.” Genesis 37:3. William
