My best friend (and longtime photo assistant, and most lovely wife!) has alway supported my photography obsession. But recently Lynn has gone above and beyond with her imaging help.
Cardinal pair. Lynn helped me catch these two in the tree outside her office window. I don’t know how she got them to pose so nicely!
She’s set up a feeder and bird bath in our backyard and all sorts of winged visitors are stopping by. Here’s a closeup of the feeder with two more of our guests.
Tufted Titmouse pair.
The feeder is a “Squirrel Buster Plus” and it really does keep squirrels out, although they enjoy cleaning up any seeds the birds drop.
Lynn placed it so she could watch from the back room and she’s been letting me know when she spots something interesting. I made the photos in this post over a two-day period without working too hard at all.
The feeder is suspended from this tree and the birds stop in the branches to scope things out or wait their turn.
In addition to the ones shown here we’ve also seen Sparrows, a Carolina Wren, Palm Warblers, and what I think was a Black and White Warbler. Quite a variety!
