I was up late last night processing bird images from my photoblind in the little Lake Valley. There were a lot of House finches in the mix of birds I photographed. What was neat to see was the amount of variants. the ones that had plumage different from the usual red that the males typically had. There was also an immature or a young female with some wild looking feathers on its head.These are some of my favorites. God's love and blessings. Have a great day, chris all images made with a Canon 7D and a Tamron 150-600mm lens on a Manfrotto tripod with a Bogen ballhead.What is the price of five sparrows? A couple of pennies? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to him than a whole flock of sparrows. (Luke 12:6)
