Burds, a shed and sunset
Cabin fever started to work on me today and I lucked out; the temperature and humidity started taking a nose dive as the sun went down.
But before that happened I was back to my old tricks; shooting the visitors in Burd Town through the bedroom window. For those who don’t already know, Burd Town is what I call the tree full of feeders Frankie has outside our bedroom window. She loves watching the little guys and they make interesting photo subjects .
They also make great learning aids when I’m experimenting with my new lens. Today was so boring that I actually tore the wrapper off the manual and read it! I have it pretty much figured out and I’m very impressed with the clarity and crispness it produces but there’s no such thing as too much practice. This female cardinal was happy to pose for me…..as long as the supply of sunflower seeds in the feeder held out.
As the temperature dropped into the 70s I couldn’t take being indoors any longer so Sam and I went for a short ride. I’ve been meaning to get a shot of this farm shed.
My intention was to find a good place to watch and capture the sunset but that didn’t work out. A church group was having a yard sale in the parking lot I chose and space was at a premium.
Oh, well There will be other days and other sunsets. At least I managed to get this last shot from the driver’s side window as I waited to pull out of the lot.
