I live close to a bird sanctuary. Every morning, especially during spring time, I have a great view through the kitchen window of a variety of birds feeding on bird seeds that our landlady has strategically placed all over her backyard. It’s always a sight to behold, especially when the red and blue birds come. (I should look up what these birds are…). I always thought of bringing out the camera and taking photos of them, but on weekday mornings, I’m always on a rush and keep forgetting about it. This morning, while having a mid-day snack and looking out the kitchen window, I saw the gang again and remembered to take out the camera! It was a challenge shooting them because they were always moving around. I had to keep still, be quiet and wait patiently so that they won’t fly away. This was hard to do – it was quite chilly, and because I was too excited to take photos, I went out without a jacket and did not bother to put on my shoes. My zoom lens wasn’t long enough to photograph them in great detail, but when I zoomed in on the images in the computer, they weren’t bad at all! Here’s my favorite photo of the bunch I took today.
Edited to add: The “blue” birds are blue jays and the red one is a male cardinal.
