Last Day of 2015
It’s the last day of 2015 (which is December 31).
And here is my friend, the Black Phoebe.
You will find this bird on this branch every day at the Fullerton Arboretum.
But you will find this bird on this branch with this background only during December and January. And then, you will find this warm side light only early in the morning.
This commemorates an important aspect of bird photography.
Bird photography begins as an activity, evolves into a craft, and matures into an art.
These latter phases require being in the right place at the right time with the right equipment.
I’ll share that I’m always seeking a deeper understanding of what I do.
This helps me with everything, including taking better photos, giving better presentations, and conducting better photo classes.

The most effective way to help birds is to buy land.
Here are three organizations that excel at doing this.
Please visit their web sites to learn about the work they do.
Here’s an excellent book: The American Bird Conservancy Guide to Bird Conservation
