Some garden birds!
This summer I decided to try and take as many pics as possible of the various kinds of birds we have that visit the garden. It's been a fun challenge although I've managed to get quite a few, I still haven't been able to capture them all...they are SOOO fast! LOL

Anyway, here's a few pics, hope you enjoy them.

RE: Some garden birds!
The pictures are amazing and you are so fortunate to have such beautiful models. We have a few exceptions, but most southeast Michigan birds are very dull in comparison to yours.

You have alot of beautiful colored birds. Must be awesome watching them at your feeders. I would never get anything done if I had those visitors to my garden they are so beautiful.

We are indeed very fortunate over here, and depending where you travel you can get some truly amazing birds. Even these are only about half that visit the garden, I'm hoping to try and capture more if I can. Smile

No, no telephoto lens (wish I had one, I could have captured some more varieties) Big Grin
Most of these are outside my bedroom window and some others just taking a walk through the garden. Smile

Hope you come right with Flickr, would love to see your fur family!

I love this!
We have completely different birds! Lots of sea birds, a crow, doves and I do not know what they are, but I can spend hours....

Thanks MM! I love the sea birds too, hopefully if I'm at the coast again I'll have my camera with me and can hopefully capture some of them too. I'm thankful for all the ones I've captured so far...perhaps I'll upload more onto Flickr sometime and share some of the other garden birds. Smile x
