During the cold winter months, and especially when it snows, I keep the birdfeeders filled. Snapping pictures of our winged visitors is pretty tricky with my little pocket-sized camera. I do the best I can photographing them through the windows and from the front porch swing. This winter I placed birdfeeders in my front windowboxes so I could get even closer. But getting a great shot is hard when the little beaked wonders are way faster than I am! Peanuts, suet, seed mix, stale bread , dried corn and fruit offerings are set out not only for dining but to lure my subjects and keep them for a bit. Even so, getting decent pictures often takes dozens of tries! Little wrens and chickadees have been the most elusive. By the time I focus, they are gone! Each frame is even more special to me because it wasn’t so easy. I hope you enjoy seeing them, too.
