Visiting a Friend

A friend asked John over to estimate a small home repair. I went along with the camera to see what I could find. It was a part of the village I hadn't explored before. I ended up not actually exploring it on this day, either, because the birds were plentiful and the time was short. So I stayed on the property and shot there.

The chickadees were all atwitter about something, and I caught this upset one. I was happy to see the goldfinches at a neighbor's feeder, but not happy to see the goldfinches at a feeder. I got poor shots but I have few of these birds.  There are pigeons in the village (not up here at home), and they were pleased to pose for me. The lighting and colors of the pigeons prevented great photos. So these are the three birds I caught. Not great, but lots of fun.

    Me, too! Can't get enough of him! And it's always fun exploring while he's working. I'm glad you stopped in, Sandy.


Thank you for visiting and for your comments!
