My Photo Shoot with a Downy

This photo shoot with the Male Female Downy Woodpecker,
went on for more then three minutes.
It was hard for me to leave the window where we were shooting,
but geez, I was sure I had enough pictures.
 
I'll let you guys be the judge...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Nice Moves, Right??
 
I know this is too many pictures but how could one resist??
She just sits there, then she starts posing.
There is a suet hanging right above her, but she stays with me.
 
I know people think I am "bird crazy" but I really think the birds see me,
like me and are not afraid!!
 
Tomorrow, I'll try to post about "real life", promise!!

  2. It's never too many pictures! I would have stayed at that window for an hour. I love these birds. We have many, many woodpeckers here. I"m pretty sure, though, that they don't like me as much!

  4. Never too many pictures. Thank heavens we don't have to use 35mm film. Hubby would need a part time job!!! Great shots of your little feathered friend.

  5. But he was really asking you which was his best side, the left or the right, or maybe if you were looking up at him...
    I love those cupcake plates!!!

  14. When you have a great photo shoot going you don't ask when do I stop...Your subject was certainly agreeable and I think you were obligated to shoot until he stopped posing for you....After all you didn't want to hurt his little feelings....I bet he will be back to visit you again.....

  17. I couldn't resist looking at each one. Each stands on its own and together they are a symphony.

    p.s. they're fun to watch too!

  18. Definitely not too many - every one of them is great! What a ham this little guy is - I probably would have taken about a hundred!

  19. I had a female Downy visiting today but she didn't stay to pose so nicely. Fun photos.

  20. I'm thinking this Downy is a she since there isn't a red patch on the head! I was just shooting a female a couple of days ago myself. They will sit still longer than most birds and are easier to get a clear shot. I think they are so cute! You got some great shots!

  22. Debbie, please keep doing all of these photos. This one was awesome; truly great shots. After that Crow special on PBS; I do believe that birds are for more intelligent than we think they are.
    Blessings to you; I loved the pictures

  26. Beautiful photos, Debbie! We have a pair here and they love the suet. They rarely visit together, though. The male will chase the female away.
