All that’s missing…

Maybe the birds were extra hungry on Thursday morning after the thunderstorms the night before. The hawk had landed on the fence but he was looking into the yard behind me. I picked up the camera and shot some pictures through the sliding glass door plus the lanai screen, so considering the circumstances I liked the feather photo a lot.

Who scared who? Carolina chickadee vs. downey woodpecker.
The fruit and nut cake is a hit, and I think I’d better buy a replacement soon.
The Carolina chickadee likes to play king of the hill.

Today I am ready. I have a seat set up on the lanai, and my tripod is in place, but the birds are missing. Isn’t that always the way?

They announced themselves, loudly. Three of them.
I hoped they’d leave us alone when the mealworms ran out.

Did I say I was ready? Well, I wasn’t as ready as I thought I was because the little Manfrotto button that attaches the camera to the tripod is missing. I’ve left a trail of them over the years, but lucky for me I can order a new one. Or buy a better tripod…

    1. Tripods are a PITA! I just bought one because my husband insists that the one I’ve always used is a piece of junk. Last night I used the new one and hated it. I like a pistol grip. I don’t tighten it down apparently, I just use the grip to hold it steady and shoot. So last night there was nothing to hold onto. I hope I get used to it.
