Pinterest can generate a lot of traffic to your site fast, it has become a key in self promotion and showing off your products.  By having others repin and "like" your pins it moves yours towards that top bracket (where we all want to be!)

For this to be successful there will be some rules and instructions. Please note we are using InLinkz for our pins to promote, click, and repin, makes it sooo much easier :)

Photography By Colleen on Pixels - Annoyed A Great Heron Story

Annoyed - Heron And Red Winged Blackbird 8 Of 10
Annoyed - A Great Heron Story
Today's collection is a series called "Annoyed." This is a series of consecutive photographs taken while a red winged blackbird attacked a much larger Heron at the Chicago Botanical Garden. 

Frequently I see these small birds attack much larger birds.  Many times the attacks are in midair and I have always wondered what would ever possess them to take on something so threatening.  Did a turkey buzzard eat their pa and now they seek revenge?  Did a Raven kick their eggs out of nest just to be mean? Really what is it?

What I especially enjoy with this series is that you can clearly see the Heron's response and how annoyed he is by this pest.  The last image you can almost see the Heron say "That's Right... Get!" LOL
Hope you enjoy.

Before we get started on my new collection I want to remind everyone to enter to win TWO 11 x 14 prints of your choice.  Go to my post at: Back To School Giveaway Sweepstakes-TWO 11 x 14 Fine Art Photographs


I am also broadening my reach by offering my photographs at a couple more sites.  The items that each are able to offer are slightly different and it just depends on where you would want to purchase from.
