This morning I had a plan. I would fill up the birdfeeder with lots of goodies, hide myself in the corner of the kitchen and finally get lots of pictures of the many birds that come to eat breakfast. This is being determined!!
So first I made sure I had dark clothing on (one time I tried to blend in not realizing I was wearing a bright orange t-shirt. That really worked well)
Then I got my coffee ready. Can't sit still for long without my morning coffee. Figured I'd use a long straw so I wouldn't have to raise the cup to my mouth while holding the camera. (Trying to cover all bases.)
Then I perched on the kitchen counter under the pot rack, hoping my face would look like just another frying pan, ( I'm sure it did.)
Then I brought the camera up to my face. This shouldn't take too long because they usually come within minutes after I fill it up.
I waited. After a few minutes I began to think this might take longer than I had planned on. But I was going to stay there no matter how long it took. This is being stubborn!!! Finally after about 20 minutes with aching arms and back I climbed down from the counter to upload the results of my morning endeavors.
That's right. Nothing. Nada. Zero. Zilch. No need to click on this picture because there's nothing hiding in the background either. Of all days to go elsewhere for breakfast, they had to choose today.
