October 10. Dove at the bird bath. I am finally getting birds at the birdbath - many months after I put it in. I worked all day - yes still cleaning. This evening while I was fixing dinner I looked out and saw a bunch of birds at the feeder. The evening light was falling right on the feeder and looked pretty promising. I ran and got the camera! I was only about 30 feet away and well hidden by the house but the birds heard the shutter click and spooked at that. UGH. I don't think I am cut out for photographing birds :-) I need that 1.4 extender too, and a blind and a lot of time on my hands to sit around and wait them out. Well, I tried. At least I got to use my camera.
