This guy followed me around all day...or so it seemed. If I was planting scarlet runner beans, out of the apple tree he popped, to sing like a robin only louder and clearer. Then I was on the front porch watering plants and he came chasing his lady friend through the box elder bushes.
All righty then, I will stop what I am doing and go get the camera.
Instantly he vanished. All morning and half the afternoon he had been hanging around in plain view and no more than twenty feet from me. But once the camera showed up, whoosh, gone.....He was still there actually, right in the old apple tree outside the kitchen window, but would he come out to get his picture taken? Nope, too shy (although he is not too shy to get up to all manner of high jinks with his girl friend. My goodness!)
And so, with much cropping etc., here is what I got.
If he hangs around I promise to keep trying. Maybe he will let me get some better shots another day.
