I grabbed my old Kodak DC 290, set up my tripod, and used my remote shutter to shoot these pictures. I was going to get rid of my old camera, outdated, low resolution, low ISO, buttons failing, etc, but I think web pictures still look okay. I made the remote shutter a long, long time ago from a tutorial (this one is similar to the one I made, mine has dropped out of cyberspace darnit! but you'll get the idea). I don't think there's one for my new camera, although I haven't really looked yet. The trick to getting such close shots with birds is to get the camera as close as you can and you as far away as you can, make sense? Or you can spend thousands on a really souped up camera with an incredible zoom feature....gee I wonder what my Ford Explorer is worth these days, maybe I can make a partial down payment with that?
"Hey quit pushing!"
These two kept twirling around and around, it was like watching a ballet.
He's quite a handsome fella and, once she stops eating, she might notice him...gee that sounds like some humans I know :)
Oh my... this guy looks like he got up on the wrong side of the bed, can we say "grumpy?"
