I haven’t shown any backyard birds for some time so I thought I could get by with showing you a few today. I was sitting on the patio last evening enjoying the weather and an adult beverage and was watching the birds do their thing. I used to feed all the birds but they turned the patio into a mine field and an everyday chore of cleaning up their poop. So now I only feed the Gold Finches. I love their bright color and they don’t seem to come to the patio to use the bathroom. 🙂
I was watching this Robin scoot along the back yard looking for worms and as I watched him with the telephoto lens he would hop a few feet and then turn his head like he is in this image. I don’t study wildlife but it seemed to me that he must be listening for worms making noise assuming they do in fact make noise as they tunnel through the ground.
Kind of a quasi butt shot but I like the background bokeh the lens produced. All shots were taken with the Nikon D4 | Sigma 150 – 600 C version lens | ISO 1200 1/1250 sec @ f6.5
That’s all I have for you today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
