This male Red-winged Blackbird was photographed yesterday at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area. There are tons of Red-winged Blackbirds in the area right now but this was the only one that allowed a close enough approach where I could photograph it, the rest were very skittish. I was tickled to see the flying midge in the image because I hadn’t noticed it when I was taking the photos.
I am a little frustrated this morning because my computer automatically updated to Windows 8.1 and it took almost an hour and a half just to be able to work on a post so I am keeping this short. I suppose the next time I boot up my lap top I am going to have to go through the whole process again with it. Grumble.
Even when I am frustrated life is good. Sorta.
