All of the posted Bird threads in the previous week inspired me to wake up earlier then usual today, borrow a lens and try my hand at bird photography. My respect for bird photographers just went up, as I am certain I do not have the patience or eye to tell when exactly those birds will take flight (as seen in pictures below). Saying that, I will leave future bird photos to the Eastern Canadians . Enjoy laughing at my attempt. (My apologies if the photos seem a bit large. I was having some difficulty resizing for photobucket) 1. This muskrat showed his face for a few minutes before disappearing again. 2. There were probably about five or six males 'displaying' their feathers the whole time I was there, but not a single female was visibly present 3. 4. 5. 6. The bloopers 7. 8.
