Wild Birds










This morning I went out to the Burris Ranch to do some bird photography. I wasn't expecting much because it's midsummer and a lot of the birds are beginning to molt.I was really surprised how many birds there were.The birds were falling all over themselves to get to the feeders.It was pretty wild. Finally I got into it and just began focusing on one image at a time and waiting to get what I wanted.Patience.

The Gray fox taunted me from the hill above the blind with it's harsh bark. I didn't even bother to try and photograph it as I knew the lighting and the junkyard were against any odds of me getting a good picture.Someday...

God's precious love and blessings to all,

chris
