Painted Bunting - Montgomery, Alabama

Photographed this painted bunting my way down to Florida on a country road right off the highway in Montgomery, Alabama. This was a life bird for me and probably one of the more meaningful ones i'll ever have...more on that with my next photo share of this guy as I have the complete story written up ready to post with it...which is now posted: https://plus.google.com/+MatthewStephenson/posts/ANCLTZv9w1A

Indigo Bunting - Photographed behind the +Rent It Today office in Cold Spring Ky.

I photographed this mature male Indigo Bunting behind the www.RentITToday.com office eating mulberries. Indigo buntings were among over 30 different species of birds that came to the mulberry trees behind my office this year when they were bearing fruit.

Photograph is from my bird photography album:

Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) - Magee Marsh Wildlife Area

I photographed this Killdeer sitting on a nest in a grassy area next to the parking lot of Magee Marsh Wildlife Area over by the boardwalk entrance. I'm not sure where it's mate was as there was no 2nd bird 20 feet away acting like it had a broken wing, screeming at me.

I loved how the setting sun caught the red in it's eye...

Mysterious objects called brown dwarfs are sometimes called "failed stars." They are too small to fuse hydrogen in their cores, the way most stars do, but also too large to be classified as planets. New study suggests they create powerful auroral displays, similar to the kind seen around the magnetic poles on Earth. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1N2l14a #NASABeyond

1st Spring male Blackburnian Warbler - Magee Marsh, OH

This photograph highlights all the features of a 1st spring male blackburnian warbler. He still has the brown coloration like a female, however he has a bold center headstripe unlike most females.

Blackburnian Warbler photo is from my Magee Marsh Album:

+Matthew Stephenson Me, too. After last year's round of "willful ignorance" in the tech press, I'd all-but stopped paying attention to anything they say. So it was good to see that there are still a few pros who practice critical thinking much less remember what it is.

It's one thing to state your opinion in public; that's totally acceptable.

What's not acceptable is spreading rumor and misinformation from unnamed (and, apparently, unreliable) sources as fact.

But, as with most things, "it is what it is" and people will figure it out for themselves eventually. ;)

Canada Warbler (male) - Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, OH

I didnt get many oppotunities to photograph male Canada Warblers while at magee (I think I only saw 2)...this one i chased down the boardwalk for 20 or 30 minutes waiting to get an unobstructed view in the light...the sun was setting making the light often right behind him which didnt help.

I finally got a few reasonably good views of him which was great as I had photographed a cooperative female the previous 2 days in a row but had not seen a male.

The female was beautiful and since she hung around near the entrance of magee the first two days I was there, people were often talking about her and Canada warblers in general as you entered the boardwalk. (you can see photos of her here: https://plus.google.com/+MatthewStephenson/posts/5jwJCkRbp1S and here: https://plus.google.com/+MatthewStephenson/posts/eEAM6e7vtfk )

Anyhow, listening to people talk about how much more vividly colored males were and how bold the males 'necklace' was compared to a female made me really want to see one in person. Especially considering I thought the female was so nice looking. 

Males are so bright and their 'necklace' so bold that if you just catch a glimpse you could mistake it for a Magnolia. Here is another photo of this male I shared previously:  https://plus.google.com/+MatthewStephenson/posts/7noKJGHrPrL

Chestnut-sided Warbler - Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, OH

Photo is from my Magee Marsh Album:
https://plus.google.com/photos/+MatthewStephenson/albums/6149719344161060545

This photo was captured in the same sequence as a previously shared image of a Chesnut-sided warbler. I removed some of the green color cast from the leaves  which gave the image a slightly different look. Here is a link to the other image I shared of this warbler (his head was tilted slightly down compared to this image): https://plus.google.com/+MatthewStephenson/posts/F4m1ajaJtXT

Rudler & Associates are true experts when it comes to personal and corporate tax and accounting services. I have employed Mike Lenihan, managing shareholder at Rudler, and his team at to do my personal taxes since 2003. This past year my partner and I have entrusted Mike's firm with our business accounting and tax preparation. Mike and his team are not only expert accountants but I view them as business mentors. They have always shown a great interest in the overall success of my company and watched it grow from a bootstrap startup company to an emerging young successful business. They have always gone above and beyond in order to help. As the owner of a startup company, I am always in the position of "wearing too many hats". Having all of my accounting and tax work in Mike Lenihan's hands allows me to not only mark that off of my list of things to worry about but do so knowing that they are being taken care of in the absolute best possible way. I cannot put enough emphasis on the value Mike and his team brings to the table. I highly recommend Mike Lenihan and Rudler & Associates, Inc, CPA's for both personal and business accounting services.
