    Against Dew's sage advice I did get the ladder out (more nads than brains, eh Dew?) and grabbed a couple of shots to share.

    So, there I was, one foot on the ladder, one foot on the brick facia on the front of the house and the tripod flattened against the siding. Balance, check focus, balance, wait for the buggers to look at the camera, balance, snap the shot. Worked okay I guess. :wink:

    These are from around 6 inches or so. And like the one yesterday, they're cropped from the original. They were pretty tame. It was only around 50 degrees or so, andn they were'nt too active yet. Except when I wasn't paying attention and breathed on them. Pissed them off for some reason. :lol:

    I don't LIKE 'em, but I'm not creeped out by 'em.... :)

    These are really good - briar sharp!! Next time, flip the upside-down ones so maybe we WILL get creeped out. :wink:

    Good work - a harrowing mission well done!

    terri- I did flip them, but flipped them back. They're less threatening looking this way! :lol:

    Won't need any spray, the cold'll get 'em soon anyway & I'll snag the nest then.

    Until then they're always there to take pics of. :wink:

    I'm glad everyone can get past the "creepiness" and enjoy the pics. :)
