By the Old Watering Hole

For the past couple of weeks I have been periodically going out and sitting next to the pond in the yard. It's a great spot for photographing the birds and squirrels that have been coming for drinks and to bathe. Sometimes there can be some really long waits between subjects. It requires a lot of patience. Here is part of a sequence of a Dark Eyed Junco that stopped by. When it first arrived it sat on the bank for quite some time before tentatively stepping forward to take a drink. Then it very slowly moved into the water. Once it got into the water it really got into it by diving under and splashing with its wings. God's love and blessings upon your week, chris All images were created with a Canon EOS 7D MkII camera and a Canon 100-400IS v.1 lens. Fill flash was provided by a Canon 550 EX speedlight. #TeamCanon
