Not a common duck to see (at least to me) on Boxley Pond last Saturday. Since last Saturday, it’s been so cold all week and I struggled to town on Wednesday. The ice was melted on Highway 327, but up at higher altitudes, like climbing out of my place, it was very icy. I am also including a photo from AR 327:

I took this shot from 12 feet with a Canon 600mm Lens using a Canon 7D = 960mm (1.6 crop sensor). The bee flew in, extracted pollen from a late thistle flower and left to go to another flower head:

These leaf examples were found and photographed yesterday, 9/26/14, in the afternoon. These are only examples and most of the same trees are unchanged yet. The fog was thick this morning and we had to wait until 8;30 to take any photos. The final photo is of an Orchard Oriole in  a Sassafras Tree; all tasked with point and shoots.

From yesterday morning. Since the Rufous Hummingbird is rare in Arkansas and surely out of range, I decide to post a photo of him on a feeder Saturday morning:

Over near the Ponca Arkansas low water bridge over the Buffalo River, there is a family of crows that always contains a couple to White Winged crows that have Leucism. Leucism (occasionally spelled leukism) is a general term for the phenotype resulting from defects in pigment cell differentiation and/or migration from the neural crest to skin, hair, or feathers during development. This results in either the entire surface (if all pigment cells fail to develop) or patches of body surface (if only a subset are defective) having a lack of cells capable of making pigment.

These birds are hard to find and photograph; although I did get a parting photograph of the individual with a Canon 7D and a Canon EF 300L f/2.8 IS lens:

I went out early this morning and heard a Blue Winged Warbler calling from a perch. I found him just as the sun peaked out through the heavy clouds. Taken with a Canon 70D and a Canon 600mm Lens; three poses – click to enlarge:
