Migrators, kingfisher, osprey, heron, bug - and an iguana

This week, I've got more migrating birds passing through town, and some more hunterly action with the return of the kingfishers to my area, and some osprey fishing activity picking up.  All shots A580 & Minolta 300mm F4 APO + 1.4x TC:

Pine warbler on a grey afternoon high in the pines, where you'd expect him!

Another look at a pine warbler - there were dozens of them passing through

A blue grey gnatcatcher mixed in - these guys are seriously small

One of the local green iguanas hiding out in the long grasses - they're jurassic-looking and beautiful in all their details

An osprey landing in a tree with a fish

A great blue heron up close

Belted kingfisher hanging out on a snag

Another kingfisher followed behind when he saw the one get a fish - thinking about stealing it, surely!

Belted kingfisher flies off with a fresh fish catch

A shaft of light happened to be right on this butterfly and purple flower
