At times, I can accomplish much
I wasn’t very successful that time, getting not one single photo. Well, not one of the bluebird.
This time, I got several, although I’ve come to the conclusion that I may need a better lens. I had to keep inching closer and closer to the bird house because the 70-300mm only goes so far, you know.
There were two bluebirds. This is the male.
And this is his mate. She’s got some sort of insect in her mouth and it looks big and juicy.
She looks like a ghost here.
And this is her ghostly apparition.
At one point when I had moved to about 20 feet away, they were both on the fence line at the same time.
You can see that the male has a bright green grub of some sort in his beak.
The photo is really lousy though. I need VR on my long lens.
VR is Vibration Reduction. And I don’t gots it on this one. Guess that’s why it was such a good price ~
I love sitting in the backyard on a nice day and trying to capture bird shots with the camera.
It was a feeding frenzy for them. The earth was soft from all the rain and if I hadn’t been there, they might have been more comfortable coming and going. And damn ~ those suckers really move fast, I tellya.
I do think I need another lens.

Thanks for stopping by today. Until tomorrow, then . . .
PS ~ I feel a Giveaway coming on, don’t you?
