182/365 – Snubbed

Today I decided to take some pictures of the birds that were having a ball in our yard and our little fountain. There were all kinds of birds, some that I had never seen. I was excited! Well, as soon as I set shop nearby they all disappeared. Very frustrating. But these two House Finches pitied me and came by for just a few seconds, no more…

The Watering Hole ~~

They came and went very fast. And there I was, not very far, trying to be invisible while hand-holding a very heavy full-frame camera with a 300mm zoom lens! I know that’s not the way to photograph birds, but I’ve done it before with good results. Well, this time the resulting shots were kind of “meh,” but I am sticking with them. 🙂
