September was another great month. I made the usual rounds; the Jersey shore, Bucks and Montgomery counties. The highlight of the month, was an interesting encounter was with an exhausted juvenile Ruby-throated Hummingbird that decided to take a nap upside down at the feeder. At first I thought it was being fed by an adult, but it now appears that the adult was actually attacking the juvenile. As you know, hummingbirds are extremely territorial. I am happy to report that after 15 minutes of being dive-bombed, the juvenile took off. To view the images as a slide show with music, hit the SLIDESHOW tab in the upper right.

gorgeous, as usual. however, the choice of nature sounds coupled with very quiet music was just wonderful, with the fade out of the music leaving just the nature sounds at the end a terrific choice. the hummer battle shots were of course, a delight, but your warbler shots at the beginning were instructive, and your last shot of the chipmunk just too darned cute for words….
All very enjoyable images Harris, as always. I love the pose and composition of the field sparrow and the huumingbird images are quite amazing. The shorebird images are stunning and if the one of the ruddy turnstone does not qualify as a book cover, I don't know what does! Best regards, Rob
