Peek-A-Boo to You

 

Peek-A-Boo to You 2_edited-4_wm

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.

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

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.

This is what it looks like.  I posted this a year ago but thought it might be something for my new followers and friends to consider.

Male, American Gold Finch, picking seeds from a Cone Plant

This handsome little fella was very busy a few mornings ago. He was moving from plant to plant and I was lucky to catch him before he moved again.  Actually, it seems a bit early for Finches to be feeding on Cone Plants.  We generally don’t see them until the fall.  But, this plant got his attention.

I shot this handsome rascal in February 2015.  He was watching his female who was flitting around in another bush across our backyard.

The Apprehensive Blue Jay

This Blue Jay is posted on my sales site @ Dan De Ment Fine Art.  Perhaps showcasing our work on our blog’s once in a while will generate more interest – as a group – and line up a few more followers.  It’s worth a shot!  This post is not a sales pitch … it’s a suggestion to create more followers only!

Cardinals enjoying the first big snow of the season a couple years back

Everyone is hungry when the cold and snow settle in for the wintery season.  Some of you may have seen this image in the past and since there is no snow in some areas of the Midwest – and none predicted, at this time throughout the month of January, I thought I’d re-post it for those of you who had not had a chance to view a few of the Cardinals. That winter we had as many as 20 at a time feeding on our feeder’s.
