    I went out to the backyard but did not go into my shed which works as my blind. I was able to have some birds come in. you have to move slowly. Most of the birds will accept humans being in the area but not to close. Once the yknow who you are from the continual filling of feeders they accept you. I just sat on a bucket in front of the tripod and waited.

    The top photo, although small, is very lovely. I really,really like the way the branch runs at a perfect diagonal across the frame, lending a lot of dynamism to the composition. And what's odd is that the out of focus leaf in the upper left corner, while at first blush might be considered a somewhat distracting element, almost perfectly mirrors the small fork in the branch in the upper right hand corner!

    2 looks like a bit of the background is overexposed. Otherwise, great shots!

    Good shots Robert. I find if I move very slow and talk or whistle and act as if I'm not particularly interested in them some will often stay put. The bad thing these days for me at least is that I have so many birds these days that someone will almost always give an alarm call. On the other hand, my painted bunting rockets up into the trees when ever I walk past the a window inside the house!

    One year I had a colony of grackles move in on me. They chased off all the other birds. One day I walked out the door and, as usual, all the grackles flew up into the trees. They just automatically did it with out an alarm call. I looked at the feeding platform and saw a young grackle was still there. Thinking there was something wrong with it, I walked slowly towards it talking constantly. It just stood there looking at me. I extended my hand hoping to get it to perch on a finger. Suddenly an alarm call came from the trees and the youngster took off in a panic. :D
