Blue Skies

Today's moment. I stood outdoor in my back yard waiting for some of my bird friends to stop by and when I looked up, I saw a beautiful blue sky and a few wispy clouds. Lovely day, just lovely!

Little Red

Today's moment. I stood outside near the trees and the feeders where so many birds were congregating earlier this afternoon. The Chickadees and Nuthatches would swoop in for a nut or sunflower but the Sparrows and Jays are much more cautious. Eventually the finches and the sparrows would perch in the high branches of the trees. Perfect, the high branches were in the late afternoon light. I was able to capture the catch light in the eye on a few of the photos. What fun, the Jay's did come as close as one of the trees but didn't stay long. Maybe tomorrow.....



Sunday's moment, this sweet Junco perched high enough in the tree so that he sat in the light of the afternoon sun.

Just One More Peanut

Today's moment, my little Nuthatch seemed pleased that I'd put out a fresh buffet of seeds and nuts. I so enjoy these little friends.


Blue on Blue

Friday's moment, I spent the day working on orders and contacting customers, listing things in my Etsy shop so I didn't go looking for an artistic shot or even go watch my birdies. I put my prime lens on the camera, I rarely use it and I need to learn how. I like the soft blur of everything except the earrings on this. It does work well for photographing my merchandise. I guess Friday's moment was a teaching or learning moment.

Sun Gone Down

Thursday's moment. Spent a lovely afternoon with a friend, a long lunch. Ran a couple errands and between stops I stopped to enjoy this brief but colorful moment in the parking lot of the craft store. I much prefer the natural light of daytime but am thankful for the electric lights when night falls.

Harris Sparrow

Other than my Nuthatches and Chickadees not too many birds are bold enough to come feed when I stand near the feeders. This one however was bold enough to scratch in the grass not too far from me. I believe it to be an immature Harris Sparrow. Correct me if I'm wrong please!

A Seed A Day

Today I stood outside near my feeders and just waited for the birds to come after refilling the feeders. The nuthatches are the bravest. Three or four of them would fly in and dash out each with a seed or peanut in their beaks. What fun!
