Wow, I am in awe of your steady hand! As Tracy said, your bird photos are awesome! Tell us more about your technique/patience!

Gaelyn said...

So funny that birds can sleep perched. Can you imagine humans trying that? LOL

Your excellent images show the patience required for capturing life. I need to learn that sitting quietly is OK.

God given little treasures. I love the last one, he is so precious. I find it difficult to get shots of birds because they are so quick to fly off so you have done a great job capturing them.

Diane AZ said...

Hi, thanks for your comments. These were taken from inside the house with a point-and-shoot camera. The birds were about 15' away, I just zoomed in, held still and clicked.

Beautiful shots, Diane! I haven't got any luck with bird pictures.

Oh how sweet, Diane... I love to see the baby birds this time of year... They are so vulnerable --and depend on Mom and Dad to feed them...

You captured some great pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

I wonder what he's complaining about in that first picture ... not enough food? Or maybe he was just yawning.
