13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Showing Off for the Ladies

Privately I call red-winged blackbirds "Rat Birds", because they are "dirty rats" about getting their pictures taken. They wait until I'm ready, then cry "ha! ha!" and take off. This one, however, was too busy showing off for the girls to play camera games with me.
