High flying summer eagle.

Zafiro Golondrina (Thalurania furcata), también denominado picaflor zafiro, colibrí hada de alas azules, ninfa morada, ninfa mexicana, tucusito morado, picaflor tijera verde o picaflor de barriga violeta. De acuerdo al ángulo que se ubique, a la dirección de la luz o los rayos del sol, su plumaje cambia de tonalidad y brillo. Fotografiarlo es una aventura. Es bellísimo, la naturaleza en verde, azul y violeta.

Bit of a news! My wife @mdee44 gifted me a new camera for my wildlife work, the Nikon D850! Here's the first shot from it, paired with an SB 910 flash unit.I used the sun as a rim light and the flash for fill light. The flash really helped with bringing out the various tones on the feathers of this young Rufous male. More documentary than artistic I feel. So far, the D850, paired with my Sigma 150-600 Contemporary lens is giving me way more shots in focus, than the same lens with the D500. Once I get a bit more experience using this, I hope to make a blog post comparing my experiences with both these bodies. Till then hope you enjoy this beautiful bird! . . . . . #birdsofinstagram #naturesbestphotomagazine #kings_birds #birdwatching #bestbirdshots #birdstagram #animalsaddict #birding #instabirds #animallovers #animalsofinstagram #igscwildlife #exclusive_animals #naturyst #hummingbird #animalworld #bbcearth #pnw #thatpnwlife #pnwonderland #greatnorthcollective #upperleftusa #northwestcreatives #nikonphotography #nikonartists #nikond850

The California Condor, an endangered species of vulture and my personal favorite vulture species. They are the largest soaring bird in North America with a wing span of over 10 feet. They live and breed in desert habitats in the southwest of the United States and seriously have the cutest babies ever (just so you know). ❤️

Happy Monday, all! To start your week off right, here's a couple of Scaly-Breasted Lorikeets (Trichoglossus chlorolepidotus) who were contending with their more colourful cousins for mating spots. Caught some stunning Rainbow's today which will be up soon! Taken at Minnippi Parkland. 📸-5D M3, 400mm. #scalybreastedlorikeet #lorikeet #birding #photography #photographer #birdlife #animallife #canon #canon5dmarkiii #ig_birdwatchers #ig_birdlovers #birdsofinstagram #birdphotos #birdphotography #birdlovers #nature_worldwide_birds @nature_worldwide_birds #naturyst @naturyst #canonaustralia @canonaustralia #bestbirdshots @bestbirdshots #naturyst #birdinginbrisbane #birds #australia #your_best_birds #photographer #kings_birds #waycoolshots #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet #nature_perfection @kings_birds #kings_birds

The day we spent in Sydney was also our first time ever experiencing seagulls. They seem pretty exciting at first, as they arnt really afraid of people at all, but it doesnt take long to notice they are just really cute pests. They were attacking people just to get the smallest bits of food. That being said they are still pretty cute, and I love this picture of this seagull watching the sun set over the Sydney Harbor.

Juveniles are notoriously hard to ID. The colors can be slow to come in and when they do the awkwardness of the bird is always hard to get over. 🐥 Take this #easternbluebird for example. 🔹 I really thought I had seen a swainsons or hermit thrush 😮 until my Merlin photo ID app convinced me that this was simply a little bluebird. 🧐 I can really see the thrush family resemblance now! 😀
