Caught in Action

I’m still high on adrenalin writing this post.  I went outside to check on Peter and Paul and could see that Mama Bird was not too thrilled to see me there.  She just buzzed around making sure I got the message without taking her eyes off me.

So I honored her sentiment and went in the bedroom, camera in hand and shot these pics to share with you…mama bird feeding her babies!!  The photos are not that clear because I had to take them from behind the windows…but you get the picture!

This all happened within 10 seconds! Just amazing to see!

  1. I am so impressed with all your photos! When I stopped by the other day, Mama bird buzzed and flew away, reminding me of the nest, so i had to see it for myself and I was so surprised at how teeny it is! I was also very nervous about getting too close and having Mama attack me (you know how much I love birds), so I did not muster up enough courage to peek into the nest 🙂 therefore I am doubly pleased your are documenting and sharing! Thank you!

  2. I’m so happy that this brings as much pleasure to you as it does me! I think we have a few more exciting days ahead and my camera won’t rest until then 🙂

  3. They’re amazing. I’m surprised you even got him hold still! I tried doing that at a park and fixed the lens on a particular leaf and still only managed a split-of-a-second shot.
    Excellent photos.

    1. Thank you Margaret…it was a phase I was going through at the time. Had just gotten a brand new camera and sad to say, I haven’t touched it in a while. Funny how these things work. Maybe come Spring, I’ll be moved by the colours in the garden and reach for that camera again:)
