Scarlet Tanager @ The Pageant } 10.14.16

I had the pleasure of tagging along with Scarlet Tanager as they played their inaugural show at The Pageant last weekend, opening for Fruition. Behind the scene shoots can sometimes be hit or miss depending on how well you click (or don’t click) with the musicians, but the crew has always been welcoming each time we’ve met and I’m definitely appreciative of them for giving me this opportunity to document the milestone for them.

Nothing like a Scarlet Tanager sighting when you least expect it

Well, I didn’t expect this guy to show up in the yard in mid-July. Typically I see the spectacular Scarlet Tanager in mid to late May and not again until the fall migration, if I’m lucky, or even next spring. 127 more words
