This post is for the birds!!

Literally :) I was opening windows this morning (actual windows, not the operating system lol) to let in the fresh, cool, morning air. A little sprinkling of rain won't keep me from airing out my house, stink be gone! Anyhoo, I get to my daughters room and open the blinds and there before me is a menagerie of birds surrounding the bird feeder we have hanging in the tree (and which my dear husband filled the day before). I stood there utterly fascinated by them. All the different varieties, the bickering, all of it was completely relaxing and interesting. I get the same sensation when confronted with a fish tank, I can't take my eyes away. I decided I needed to try to capture the flighty creatures on film.....or digitally as the case may be. I just clicked at random, hoping for something interesting. I have to say I got some dynamic shots! They turned out pretty well for having shot them through glass. Instead of using my usual "safe" auto setting I tried AV and I have to say, I like the results I got. I hope everyone is having a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by :).
Mom, I am sure Thursday will be a piece of cake, but my thoughts are with you, as are my prayers. Be sure to call me and let me know how everything went. Hugs and kisses to you and Larry :) I love you both very much. I hope you enjoyed my birds :)
