A Kirtland's Warbler and Other Spring Birds

I love spring migration! To the surprise and delight of birders and nature photographers, a rare bird, the Kirtland's Warbler, visited Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary in Chicago for two days in May.

Below are a series of photographs taken during the 2015 spring season.

You keep outdoing yourself; a stunning series of spring migrants.

Hello... National Geographic! :)

TexWisGirl said...

my goodness, always a pleasure to see a post from you! you get a wide variety of warblers, there and take smashing photos of them to share with us!

Pierre Cenerelli said...

These photos are spectacular! I am so jealous of the beautiful birds you can capture in your neck of the woods. Metro Vancouver is a great place to do birding, but we lack some of the more spectacular warblers and finches seen east of the Rockies.

Kathie Brown said...

Just gorgeous, Julie!

Rohrerbot said...

Julie, I need to learn from you. One of the most difficult birds for me to photograph are the warblers. I think they are such pretty birds but they are so difficult. These pics are sharp and wonderful! The Kirtland's is a real treat! Congrats!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Julie,
Quite amazing indeed for being able to capture such a wide variety of warblers. The combination with fresh and lush green makes your photos brilliant!
Hugs to you,

Применение виагры гарантирует мужчинам, страдающим импотенцией, усиление эрекции полового члена в случаях неспособности ее достижения и поддержания на уровне, необходимом для осуществления полноценного полового акта, в течение достаточно длительного времени. Сайт

Как действует виагра

Виагра доказала свою функциональность в большинстве случаев эректильной дисфункции. Она была изобретена в конце прошлого века, но до сих пор это самый популярный препарат для лечения импотенции. Сильная, качественная эрекция - это самая важная вещь для мужчины во время секса, и поэтому виагра заслужила такое признание. Если вас интересует, где купить виагру, то в конце этой статьи есть ссылка.

Как действует виагра на мужчин

Для достижения сильной и продолжительной эрекции требуется полноценное кровенаполнение полового члена, и виагра обеспечивает это.

Физиологический процесс, ответственный за то, чтобы половой член "стоял", заключается в высвобождении оксида азота в пещеристых (кавернозных) телах пениса в результате сексуальной стимуляции. Окись азота активирует фермент гуанилатциклазу, следствием чего являются повышение уровня циклического гуанозинмонофосфата (цГМФ), расслабление гладкой мускулатуры кавернозного тела и усиление притока крови в половой член.
