I took this picture in Colorado about an hour east of Boulder. As you can see i did edit the colors and noise in lightroom. Sadfly there is a bit of lightpollution to the right. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1NP74Wu
The Variegated Flycatcher breeds in much of South America east of the Andes south to northern Argentina, although it is apparently absent as a breeder from western Amazonia. The nominate subspecies (E. v. varius) vacates the southern portion of its breeding range during the austral winter, moving north to northern South America, including the western Amazon basin. As with some other austral migrants, this species is prone to vagrancy, and there have been several records from the United States and Canada. One of several similar “streaked” flycatchers, the Variegated is intermediate in size between the smaller Piratic (Legatus leucophaius) and larger Streaked (Myiodynastes maculatus) flycatchers. It is fairly common and conspicuous in forest patches, edge habitats, and more heavily-wooded savannas, where it sallies for insects and also regularly consumes small fruit. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1H8MCme
Almost a year ago this image was taken and I remember that day as clearly as if it happened yesterday. The fog really suited that whole day. There were some misty mornings and evenings the last days but I did not manage to get up as early as I wanted to shoot another tree I recently discovered. Hopefully the fog will return soon!
Have a wonderful autumn day, friends and strangers! via Tumblr http://bit.ly/1kwo2kw
