Wild Birds: "I'm Bringing Booty Back"

Birds are just as lovely from the back as from the front. I happen to think that's true. Their feather patterns are so much easier to study and admire when they decide to keep their backside to my camera.

You make your point I follow a blog called Burdz Butz and he features birds from behind.He's also very humorous and knowledgeable about birds.

I am so showing this post to a certain person who lives with me. He laughs at all my butt shots...but I still posted a couple today anyhow.

But you have some lovely logical reasoning here! Seriously. Thanks.

Really wonderful captures, Carletta! I seldom get a chance to photograph them from their backside. I do like seeing all the details from the back...

Great photos! And you have a good point.

I agree! Profiles are wonderful and straight-on shots give you their faces, but the back is seldom appreciated for it's feather patterns and colors, and I love seeing them! You took some great photos!

It's true that most birds are quite attractive viewed from the back.
