Earth Week Celebration

This coming Thursday, April 22nd, is Earth Day. This is a very important day for environmentalists, and all people who care about nature, around the world. Earth Day has another significance for me though, this Thursday will be the third anniversary of the Ecobirder blog. To celebrate our anniversary I would like to share the pics that I put into my 2010 calendar with you. Each year I put together a calendar with some of the best pics that I took that year for my family and friends. Maybe some day I might end up making them more available to people but for now I will share them with you as my blog posts for this week.

This first shot was taken at Crex Meadows and it is one of two macro pics included in the calendar.

Superb capture! That bee looks so laden with pollen, I'm surprised it can still fly! ~ks

Great capture - I know how hard it is to get these bees in focus. Thanks for sharing!

What a great shot that is! Must have been a fast shutter speed and a tripod?

Love it!
