    Thumbs up Blossoms and Birds

    These are just a few photos taken in my back yard today. I love this time of the year when the blossoms and birds really announce that Spring is here!

    Beautiful pics Dick! Thanks for sharing!!

    What I would love to know is how do you keep the birds (and other critters) from leaving the scene? Are you a really far distance away when you take those pics?

    Great shots Dick.

    You can zoom in from a little distance but getting a clear shot can be a challenge, seems like they are always in constant motion.
    There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness".

    Red, The birds were only about 30 feet from me and I was using my wife's Camera with a 300 mm. Telephoto lens on it, so they don't really feel threatened. Besides that, I was standing in our back door with the lens propped up against the door jam with just the front 4 inches sticking out the door.

    They sure are always moving! The key is a steady hand, something to prop the camera on and a FAST Shutter Speed. Plus a LOT of LUCK!

    This is one of my methods I use to take photos of Eagles high in a tree:



    It beats lugging around a heavy Tripod.

    This is one of the photos I took while I was propped up against the tree:
