It's funny... I never gave two hoots ( pardon the pun ) about birds before I started shooting. Now, I am educated in all the birds we get in our area as well as WAY more information about birds than I probably ever wanted to know LOL.

Anyway.. couple of bird shots for yas. We get a lot of blue jays , chickadees and finches here in New Brunswick. Since we bought our house and loaded the yard with feeders, we pretty much have to fill them daily. A little bit of expense for countless bird shots... I'll take it :thumbup:

and an older Blue Jay shot. I baited him with peanuts and just snapped away while he was checking out the scene

Love the little chickadee perched on the glove. They are such brave, inquisitive little things. Nice set!

Nice set. I love number 3, a bird in the hand. (I guess it's worth 10 in the bush, number 2)

This is a great set of birdiegraphs :laughing: I just may have to put out a feeder or two myself this year :)

Nice work there opener ... the 1st and 4th appeal the most to me. I like the trees in those ecause I rarely see pine type trees around my area.

Another vote for #3 as well. Nice subject separation from the hand, and some very nice bokeh.
