Here is my only photo of some Snow Birds (aka Snow Buntings) who often flash their white wings when roused from their roadside pecking (salt?).   This was shot from a long ways away.  Beautiful birdies, worth looking at up close.  Amazing birds when you look at their migration patterns (high arctic in summer, around here in the winter).

I came across some more of Mark Berkery’s Macro Photography this morning.   This is a great illustrated article about how he does it.
