Sparrows on the Feeder

Catching three Sparrows feeding at once is pretty unusual. If the odd one out – on the left – would have been feeding as well I might have an award winning image.😏🤔

Male Cardinal on the Feeder

It’s always great when I can catch one bird on the Feeder at a time – particularly a handsome Cardinal.

Sparrows Ground Feeding

These Sparrows were enjoying the banquet that had fallen from the Feeder.  My wife, Jean, fills the Feeder and within an hour it’s empty.  Sparrows, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Chicakadees and Juncos all enjoy the bounty. Oh yes, one persistent Starling usually shows up.

This pretty gal seems to be taking everything in around our feeder.  The feeder is actually below and to her right.

Peek-A-Boo to You

This Male Cardinal seemed determined I would not get his image.  I waited about a minute, camera in focus, before he turned his head toward me.  Fortunately, the feeder was almost empty.  I used my 75-300 Canon Zoom Lens for the shot.

Last week our neighborhood was left with a  blanket of  snow.

This gentleman decided to claim the Feeder for a spell the other day.

Well, when it snows it sure changes your perspective, doesn’t it?

This little rascal was one of the first visitors to our Feeder this new year.  He got busy!

Birds at the Feeder New Year’s Day

Birds at the Feeder New Years Day_edited-3_wm

I shot this image yesterday.  There were only a couple birds at the feeder.  Two Male Cardinals and one Junco.  A bit of the ole, De Ment, luck.  I just happened to hit the shutter as one of the Cardinals was in motion.  The other Cardinal is almost hidden by the dark of the window and the Junco looks on from the upper right. I have a good many images to load over the next few days.

Formula 1 Racing Start

I had a bit of fun here.  I’m a big fan of Formula 1 racing and shot this image off my TV.  Loaded it into Aviary, cropped and sharpened it and, you see the result.  Why don’t you have a little fun with your photography once in a while?
