Beautiful weather today, just had to bring out the camera and see who was playing in the yard. Most of the time I like shooting birds in their natural habitat, mostly in the trees or in flight. Today I put out some seed on a flat feeder we rigged up with the nice hunk of tree you see in these pictures. Set up a little ways away and wait for the feeding to begin. I liken this to taking photographs in a studio. Nice green grassy background that the lens blurs into what could be a backdrop. The birds perched on the branch waiting for their turn to feed. Now if you would just turn your head a little to the right – perfect!
If you would click on the image above I’ve put together a slideshow of todays models – stunning darling, just stunning!
Oh, look in the upper righthand corner of the slideshow. Click on the little “screen” and the images will go full screen. Pretty neat.
