birds. i love birds. and this year i have been pretty lucky to have several goodies in or near my back yard. i pulled out the birding scope to get a better look at this one. a cedar waxwing. there were three in the madrona in the alley. i think they are one of the most beautiful birds and i am not just a little excited to have them around here for the first time.
i also am loving this digital camera. until i had the blog i thought that a digital camera was cheating somehow. now, i am not thinking that so much. it is so great that i can take 97 pictures of a bird and look at them just minutes later. i do have some more things to learn, and the more i learn the more i think i need to know.
this shot was taken with the camera lens pressed up to the eyepiece of my telescope. i know there are tricks to achieving better results. one of the things i intend to figure out this summer is what those tricks are.
