That tripod does not scare me!

Published by under 365

The birds were flocking to the feeder today. Yesterday was gorgeous. Today is cold and rainy. I set up the tripod and remote. Many of them jumped away when they heard a click or a flash but this little fellow was not deterred!

I finally got a bird shot that really pleases me ! I have been satisfied before to just capture the bird but this one is up close, clear, & crisp. Plus it has a nice background.

Come on guys, more food is out!

Closeup of a cardinal

Published by under 365

The cardinals decided my camera was not a threat today as they lit near it. A few even set on the remote wire that I had strung to the inside. Some even dared to sit on parts of my tripod but all it took was a quick click to get them scurrying away from my […]

A pretty, blue bird!

I was exploring the square once again in downtown McDonough and this bird let me get very close. I think it’s a female Purple Finch but I am not positive. I was afraid to take the time to change my settings for fear of scaring her away. I was just pleased to get the shot! […]

The Daily Shoot: Look up today and make a photograph of the sky. Cloudy, clear, or somewhere in between? Tell the story of your sky today. I was busy trying to learn how to take a panorama shot for my class and I turned to see this small bird on this “yield” sign. His head […]

Getting ready to take off!

Published by under 365

It took awhile but I finally captured this little bird! He only stayed a moment and I caught him in the act of getting ready to fly away. I spent a lot of time today chasing two persistent squirrels off the feeder – they want the food more than they fear me! OK, my next […]
