Grassy Fields

 Lines of gold and green

I very much like the contrast of the yellow fields with the green.

 Blackbirds

Blackbirds are gathering - not ready to fly south yet, though.

 A longer view of blackbirds

Almost like patchwork

Fantastic! I LOVE your RWBB in flight!!! SUPER!

Halcyon said...

SO beautiful. I really love the gold fields... and of course the red wings on the blackbirds. :)

William Kendall said...

Gorgeous shots, and I imagine at this time of year the redwings are less likely to be territorial.

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous shots!

DeniseinVA said...

Oh my gosh, I have never seen so many Re-winged blackbirds. Your photos are wonderful!

Rose said...

Ahhh, so beautiful. Also has the feel of fall approaching to me.

Revrunner said...

I like that first shot of the blackbirds, especially.

Lowell said...

I saw ONE red winged blackbird a few months ago...took a crummy picture of it. Now I'm glad I didn't post it...I would have looked really dumb after seeing this post. Love the lines of green and gold. (There's a song there somewhere!)

Michelle said...

I LOVE the second picture. Such a great action shot of those blackbirds!

RedPat said...

I love this series and the scavenger pics too, EG! I hope those birds aren't heading south already!!

NatureFootstep said...

love your yellow fields with it+s wavy nature. Also like the flight image of the Blackbirds. It really shows them off. :)

Jack said...

The yellow and green fields are very appealing.

Had to go and get the Sibley book to see the blackbirds. They are the first Bud and I have ever seen. Were really curious to read about them. In the book the red looks so tiny, but in your shots there is lots more. These are great captures. Kudos to you. Thanks for your sweet comment on Bud’s new attempt at blogging. We too, love The Virginia Creeper name. He is definitely a VA creeper at his age but he just keep on going like the Everready Bunny :-) Happy to be back with my blogging pals.

I've been shooting some photos like this too! What a beautiful world we live in, and it's free for the taking to enjoy anytime we open our eyes, and look!

Kathy said...

It's amazing to watch those huge flocks of blackbirds swoop in. I suppose we'll see them again soon as they migrate from your place to ours!

Randy said...

Nice flight shots.

Janie said...

I love that last pic of the fields. The gold and green is striking. The blackbirds look busy, maybe gathering leftover grain from the harvested fields.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

The fields are beautiful,but so are the Blackbirds in flight.
