I'm lucky enough to have them all in my backyard. The good majority of all of the pictures I take are from my deck or in the backyard. The rest I take from my boat and most of those are within a mile of the house. I don't have to stray too far for subjects.

We have too many HOSPs to have bluebirds. The HOSPs kill them. What a shame. Your view from your deck sounds heavenly.

I hope they stay away from here! We don't seem to have that many problems with them here. I know they're here...somewhere, but I haven't seen them. Maybe that's one thing all the hot weather down here is good for. I noticed in my Sibley's Guide to Birds that the northern states and the pacific states have much larger populations of house sparrows.

Reviving an interesting thread with a great video of.... "Wings in action!"
Check out the motion as an osprey shakes the water from itself (While in flight) after snapping up its prey. Osprey -- the ultimate fisher - YouTube

I take a few wing shots when possible. Here is an Anna's hummer in the front garden.

I'm not sure if this is the right thread--seems the theme is birds...but I'd like to add two butterfly pics to the mix.

Out of focus, I know, but still in flight. This is from my yard.

Mostly in focus--this is from a park where I walked this morning.
