Nature clicks #210 - Scarlet Tanager

Scarlet Tanager  

The Scarlet Tanager is on my “most wanted list” since I made the first photos in 2011. At that time I made a not very sharp image of this bird sitting on a suet feeder in our front yard. The jinx was broken but it wasn’t a flattering photo. There has been only a small window in time each year that we have seen the Scarlet Tanager. We have this bird here again right now, but despite it isn’t a great photo it is better than the first trial. I cropped it a little because distance was too big and the branch growing out of the bird’s head isn’t a plus either. The bottom line is, there has been some progress but I’m still not 100% happy. Not a bad thing, it keeps me going… ;-)
