I came across this image yesterday that I took one day shy of a year ago while looking for another image in my files and thought that I would post it today because I like the wing position.
The Sage Thrasher had been preening on top of a rabbitbrush and seemed to have lost its grip on the bush and fluttered one wing to regain its balance.
I have been wondering if I was going to miss the Sage Thrashers displaying because they have been here in northern Utah for a while now but bad weather has kept me out of the field far more than I would like but I checked my archives and I was still photographing them displaying later than this date last year. So hopefully I will still be able to photograph them exhibiting their courtship behaviors.
On another note, I am getting closer to completing the move of my images from my old galleries to my new improved galleries. I have moved over 5400 images and right now I have about 892 more to go. A large portion of my time has been consumed by reprocessing images that had my old watermark without my name to the new one that has my name. I hope to have the move finished soon. I’m honestly tired of it and want some of my free time back.
By the way, the Antelope Island no-see-ums (biting gnats) are back and they bit me up yesterday. Time for insect repellent and keeping my head covered with a hat. Nasty bugs.
Life is good.
