Chipping Sparrow feeding


I have reached the enviable situation where my descendants are besting my photographic efforts.

This is the summertime, and I am being visited by family, some of whom choose to wander the woods with me. The striking thing is that when we go out, these family members frequently succeed in capturing more interesting scenes than I do. There will be other such postings.

The three images below, were captured by my daughter, Cynthia, — alas, I missed the shots. She recorded a Chipping Sparrow feeding an insect to its just fledged chick.

The adult Chipping Sparrow is on the left passing a winged insect to its chick.

“Yummy, that is good.”

“But, it is not enough. What else are you going to get for me.”

    Chipping sparrows aren’t the only living things captured here by Cynthia. Notice also the finely wrought portraits of Parmelia sulcata, a.k.a. the waxpaper crottle lichen!
