Send Me An Ark...

We sure have been getting a lot of rain, copious amounts of rain.
Pouring, pounding, driving rain.
I like when it rains, we had a lot of lighting and I don't mind that either.
I don't have any trouble occupying myself indoors...
though looking back on an entire day, I often have no idea what I have done.

I don't usually photograph the birds when it's raining.
But I thought of it as a challenge and wondered what kind of images I would get,
during a dark, gloomy, rainy day.

My first photo session was with Mr. House Finch...



He was soaked but very cooperative.

Next up was Mrs. House Finch, she was uncooperative and I only got one good image,
but it was nice to actually see the rain in the image.


Next was my Yellow Rumped Warbler...


looking very beautiful and happy to pose.

The ground is soaked but the leaves are a pretty, shiny shade of brown.
And our grass is still green due to our mild winter.

  6. It's not easy to photograph when there is rain - but these shots are amazing.

    Enjoy your Friday and all good wishes for the coming weekend.
    I can't believe it's the last day of February on Monday!

    All the best Jan

  10. Well you certainly did a great job with the photos. I love the fourth one where you can see the rain falling. We got a thunderstorm - quite a rare event for February in NJ.

  11. I love that first picture, and that finch looking up as if to say," turn off the waterworks." Amazing shots. I love that one of the rain in the background. You got just incredible shots Debbie. I have been trying to capture the birds here and not having much luck, but yours are just incredible. I have lots of days like that, I couldn't tell you what I did at the end of the day. :) Have a lovely Friday

  15. One nice thing about rainy days is that there is not harsh light and shadows to spoil your photos. Very nice captures of the little finches!

  22. Great shots, you don't often see pictures of their feathers a little ruffled like that. Our grass is greening up nicely too for this time of year, just crazy isn't it.
    I am with you, I can keep busy all day doing this and that and at the end say now what did I accomplish today, but as long as I am happy it doesn't matter :)

  25. You got great shots, even in the rain. I'd loan you our ark, but I'm afraid we'll need it! How about we sail by and pick you up?
