passion / patience
L - scannography / guest image from my brother
I've been trying my hardest to get some good photos of the birds in my yard, but without success. I have the passion for it, maybe I just don't have the staying power. My brother, on the other hand, does. He sends me an incredible photo of a bird almost every day. This one of the robin tending her nest happens to be one of my favorites that he has sent but there are so many more. He has bluebirds and chickadees nesting, beautiful bright yellow finches and expressive little titmice,mockingbirds and woodpeckers, and many of this robin tending her nest at the next door neighbors. He's gotten them feeding, flying into and out of their nest, with beaks full of nesting material, even fighting. I have been amazed at his eye. Patience and persistence certainly pays off.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
