CBWC – Just One: Animal

If you notice a trend in my blog postings, it is because I really do love animals. I have captured a few solitary or single birds and mammals, which I am sharing for Cee’s Black and White Challenge (CBWC) – Just One of Anything. To my surprise, it was more difficult to find photos of just one animal by itself than I originally thought. Except for the obvious tiger, naturally territorial birds were easier to photograph by themselves.

Desert burrowing owl guarding burrow at San Diego Safari Park; captured with 300mm DSLR lens.

Red-tailed hawk waiting for his partner who circles high above him; captured with 300mm DLSR lens.

Phoebe bird sitting on his usual corner of “his” territory; captured with 70mm DSLR lens.

Fledgling hummingbird sits on fence waiting for mommy to bring him a bug (which she did moments later); captured with 300mm DSLR lens.

This egret perches on this tiny fishing boat every day — waiting for a handout or watching fish in the harbor water below him.

No, the camera is not distorted! This is a squirrel “guarding” his section of the harbor as best as he can in his shape.

  1. Awesome sightings and shots, nice in B&W! I know how tiny the Burrowing Owls are, what an adorable shot. The squirrel made me giggle. If you don’t mind me saying, the big bird on the tiny fishing boat is a Great Blue Heron, do love the shot with the anchor in the background. 🙂
