Best effort first: This female must have seen what I was doing because she sat patiently while I tooled around trying to see her in the reflections of my sun-blanked view screen. Without her vanity, I never would have gotten even this shot.
The male decided he’d better keep and eye on his lady, so he perched high on a rush and surveyed the scene. Not much detail, but his handsome shoulder patch shows well. Maybe I’ll have better luck on an overcast day.
There are quite a few red-winged blackbirds around Woodbine Pond. They are NOT hard to find, but they move quickly and constantly.
