Once again, I'm havin' some fun with my newest toy. This morning, after Pa refilled the bird feeder, we had some feathered visitors, including 2 of my favorites, a pair of Towhees.
After carefully sliding the dining room window open, as quietly as possible, I had a fine time photographing these two as they sang their sweet little songs. They're quite fond of the sunflower seeds in the mix we provide.
Shortly after the first bird left, his partner stopped by.
In addition to regaling us with their song, and being kind enough to pose for the camera, these two feathered fellows also provided me with the opportunity to get to know my camera just a bit better. As I suspected, an additional feature (or 2) allowed me to better utilize my zoom. Still need to play with it a bit though, as well as figure out how to control my tendency to "shake".
Hope you all are having a great Thursday!
