    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!

    very nice
    It's like I'm livin in a war zone, And they can write it on my tombstone.
    Here lies a man who don't cry, With ash on the feet from the pit of hells fire

    But my place ain't on the ground, I'd rather be death on my feet, than life on my knees.
    Trouble ain't nothin' But another damn thing to me.

    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:
