This image was captured recently very early one morning
at Camp Nelson in Jessamine County KY. I was actually
there to photograph some of the civil war era structures
on the property when I noticed a plethora of eastern
meadowlarks, bluebirds and barn swallows feeding
on the abundant insects that had been disturbed by
the hay baling that was going on. I basically just camped
out in the shade of several roll bales for a couple hours and
got rewarded with several nice shots of meadowlarks
and the bluebirds at close range including the image of this
meadowlark singing loud and proud. Until this day, I have
never been able to get within even a reasonable shooting
distance of this specie.They just seem such a happy bird
when they are calling; one of my favorites!
