Not to Worry! The Larder is Over-flowing!

You won’t have to travel farther than your own backyard to take great photos.  Surprisingly, a cloudy day is a good time to find a comfortable chair, sit quietly, and wait for the action to begin.  Why cloudy?  Colors will be truer and not washed out in the bright sunshine.  Depending on where you live, the wildlife will vary.  Here in the city, in the Midwest, we have cardinals, goldfinches, sparrows, house wrens, chickadees, downy woodpeckers, nuthatches, and occasionally a red-tail hawk looking for a quick snack will make an appearance.  A few birdfeeders with various types of seed will attract subjects.  One day I scattered sunflower seeds in the grass for the cardinals.  Here you will see that a chipmunk discovered them first.  He must have thought he hit the mother-lode.  His bulging cheeks are a dead giveaway, and countless trips were made back and forth to his burrow.   I would guess he has enough stashed away to have company for dinner.

I encourage responses to my posts.  You will need to click on an individual post to find the reply box for that post.  Looking forward to hearing from you. ( Your email address will be requested, but will not be made public to anyone.)

    • Thanks! I sat quietly in a chair on the patio and used a longer lens. They never knew I was there.

    Love the photos, they are so vibrant. I want to try the scone recipe, it sounds really good and easy. Quilters I,m sure would love it.
