Camera Shy

After trying for days to get a decent picture of the orioles at the feeder, this is the best I've come up with ( I know it isn't very good but you should see some of the other ones) For some reason they are extremely skittish when they see me sitting out there, and I'm not very close as you can tell by this shot. This one you definitely have to click on.

Well, duh, I didn't even know about 'clicking' on the photos!!! Wow, all I missed before I can now see with all their glory. Looked again at the final passion flower up close--I felt like a bee getting the sweet stuff:-) Now to look at all the other goodies--up close!!

Typed a response yesterday about the passion flowers, but doesn't seem to have gone anywhere?? And now I forget what I said. Guess it wasn't very important.

Yep, clicking on the photos really makes a difference. You can see all kinds of stuff that you don't notice otherwise. Some times too much stuff.

I just found your blog. So glad I did. Love your oriole photo.

I know what you mean about hard to get photos. All season I've managed to get one really bad picture of a female eating strawberries on the ground. It takes so much time and patience to get bird photos.

Welcome Marnie,
Glad you found me too. I try to sit as still as possible when trying to get a shot of the birds but they evidently see every little breath I take. I was sitting out there again this morning and wouldn't you know it 5 orioles showed up but of course I didn't have the camera with me. Figures.

We told you you were the smart one. Didn't know about clicking on the picture either. Sure makes it alot bigger. Middle sis

Works really well especially on the bird pictures. Brings them up close and personal!!
