More Than Birds In My Yard...


This spring I have counted more than 15 different bird species in my yard, many male and female. But birds are no the only thing eating from my feeders, there has also been squirrel, rabbits and chipmunks. After allowing the corn to run empty this squirrel decided he would raid the bird feeder, he struggled but still managed to get hat he wanted. The rabbit photos was taken early in the morning, after grazing on the flowers he decided to jump into the flower pot and do some bathing. It is hard to tell in the photo but it was taken early in the morning and shot at ISO 2000, 1/30 second at f2.8.

As usual, I really enjoyed catching up on your blog today.

I thought the sky watch photo and
the series on the accident were especially impressive, along with the interesting series on the tintype photography. I like the effect you used to give them a "period" look.

Great photos Brad. I enjoy looking at the wildlife ones. Like the squirrel hanging out. Looks like you have a wildlife park around your house.

Thanks all, I do my best to make my lawn a wildlife sanctuary by providing food and shelter. Now if all those birds would not wake us up so early this morning.

The squirrel appears to be doing chinups.
