I have been a photographer for about 7 years. I love birding. Most people ask how I get so close to the birds. It's actually the other way around. Gadsden, AL where I live is a valley with lots of low wetlands, and several farmland locations where birds (both domestic and migratory) hang out. I just go there with my camera sit and wait and the birds(after awhile) get closer to me. Some birds I still have trouble with, for example the Pileated Woodpecker lives here and is big as a crow, but in several years now, because it is so twitchy I have been unable to get a good shot. For the most part it is simply a matter of patience.

    1. Yes that's what leads me to believe it is from the Potter Wasp family. Plus spiders are on their snack list.

      In a swampy algae overgrown lake not far from where I live. I thought that a close up would ruin the scale.
