I have all these photos, taken during our March 31st snowstorm and now it’s feeling warmer and the snow is long gone and if I don’t post these soon I never will.
Yes, the snow is gone, at least down here in Southeast Michigan. Not to say it won’t be back. But at least we’re not still covered in snow like our friends to the north.
Last week we a were enjoying a beautiful day when I noticed this out my kitchen window…
…and the next day the view out my kitchen window looked like this:
I spent much of the morning sitting in my nice warm living room taking pictures of frantic birds landing on the feeders.
Eventually I put the camera on a tripod, sat on the sofa, and used my phone to release the shutter in order to get these shy gold finches.
It was so much fun!
I never know exactly what I’m going capture when I’m trying to shoot birds. Sometimes I’m surprised when I download everything and take a look. This one made me laugh.
I know professional bird photographers spend hours and hours preparing for a particular bird shoot…and it takes a bit of luck too. I feel pretty lucky that I can sit here and watch all these little guys stop by for a visit.
I hope you enjoyed my birds as much as I do!
