Looking good, Jed.  I haven't traveled anywhere lately to do any special photography. But, there's so much to photograph without even leaving town. I photographed the birds in my front porch nest every morning to see the changes each day brings. They left the nest this morning. I had just taken this last one yesterday -- testing the wings.



Now that they're gone, I was going to pull the nest down and clean that area. But, a friend said the breeding Finches may not be done for the season, so I'll hold off until Fall.

Here's a shot I took tonight in the garden of my building with my phone camera. I find I can get much better pictures with it by using the Pro mode. There are only a few settings you can adjust, but they really help. (I have a low-level Samsung Galaxy.)

Very nice! I never played around to find there's a pro mode (I have a Samsung Galaxy also).  I'm sure that will help -- I've always gotten pretty sub-par photos with my camera. Great tip.

These little terriers always look so happy. Maybe that's because God loves a terrier.

Thanks, Matt. Here's a couple more phone cam pix I've gotten lately:

"Manhattanhenge" effect on June 12, near Columbus Circle:


A bit past the peak Manhattanhenge days, on June 25, West 40s:


Midday, overhead shot in Union Square Park, June 16:


Finally (no pro effects on this one) ... what could be cooler than a pit bull in shades? (Today, Seventh Ave. and 51st)



PS, that reminds me ... Cute pup, Jed. :)

Nice! That last one reminds me of when my mother (an art teacher) was teaching me about perspective.  Not much traffic on those tracks, I reckon?

Bridges are my favorite thing to photograph, and there's a lot of pics that I've posted here in this thread of different bridges.  I have a few more of the New River Gorge Bridge, now that I'm home and have gone through all the photos.  If anyone is interested, the New River Gorge Bridge was the longest single span bridge in the world when it was built, but is now the fourth longest.  It's also one of the tallest (#3 in the U.S.).  On October 20th, if you want to base jump off the bridge, it's closed to vehicles for just that. Somewhat tempting to go back to photograph that, but I wouldn't be jumping off. It's a long drive though from middle Tennessee.

As an art lover, I am studying theater/cinema and last week we filmed a movie here in my city called "Intoler‚ncia" (Intolerance). It is a bold script written by our teacher that is independent movie maker. He chose the subway tracks as the set. It was great to take part in this.

The first post on this page is of the nest of baby Finches. Today I noticed one of the babies is grown and returned to hang out on my front porch. I know this is one of the babies because the mother bird fed him beak-to-beak like she did when he was a baby. I guess he's not fully adept at finding his own food yet. I went to get my camera, but she'd flown off. He stayed for a while longer.



And a few pics from my road trip. I drove through West Virginia up to Pennsylvania, stayed a few days in the Pocanoes, then visited my dad at his picturesque home on the Delaware Bay in NJ.  This is the night of the All Star Game:



And this was the next morning, just before a good storm:

Does anyone recognize this critter ... snapped on a sunflower at the Greenmarket today?



I have more pix, if it would help.

Thanks, Matt! :)

A gardener friend couldn't identify it either.

I meant to add a comment to the first of your three lovely photos in your previous post, above: When you see two grown-up birds acting like mother and baby (one begging, the other occasionally passing him a tidbit), it's not necessarily so. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allofeeding

But in your case, it probably is one of "your" finches ... come back to hang out on his very favorite front porch!
