Check it out! My first unblurry picture of the woodpecker that visits my yard everyday. First off, I gave my windows a good cleaning w/ vinegar. Second the screen got lifted up. Third, I didn't overzoom. Fourth, the lighting was perfect (both inside and outside).
Once I realized how nice the photo came out I became a woman obsessed. I had a turkey to put in the oven and casseroles to prepare, but all I wanted to do was take photos. The wild life was abundant in my yard yesterday and I wanted to capture every moment of it.
This is a picture of my cardinal. What you see behind him is a small section of temporary fencing and chicken wire is behind that. I do this to make the feeding station as close to Fort Knox as I can. My neighbor has a cat that gets out on occasion and I want to make it as unpleasant as possible for him to enter. He doesn't get out much, but you can never be too careful. The un raked leaves behind him serve a purpose as well. You see they crinkle when you walk on them so it's my very own crinkle alarm. While it is not pleasant on the eye, I am proud to announce I have not had a bird casualty that I know of yet. This is my method of thinking folks, I overly complicate everything. ;o)
Last one, I promise. HA
I now want to photograph everything. I can finally understand why some of you are so dedicated to photo taking in your blogs. It is fun! I have the whole weekend for photos so I am going to continue to practice.
On a serious note I wanted to pass a link I found through the Cloud Messenger's blog to someone who lives in Mumbai. If you are concerned for all of the people living in chaos and hell right now, than I suggest you stop by and offer your well wishes and thoughts. They need to know that the world is with them on this and we are unified in wishing for peace in our country and every other country in this very large globe of ours. Here is the link. http://mumbai-eyed.blogspot.com/
Peace to all
