A Success Story!!

A few days ago I decided to go outside to photograph the birds.
I usually take my pictures from inside,
through an open window.
 
I wanted to see how close my feathered friends would let me get,
and still come in to pick up a nut.
 
Boy was I surprised, I was about five feet away from
this beautiful Titmouse.
He cared not, my presence, the clicking camera...
no worries, he just hung out and did "his thing".
 
No words are necessary, 
here's "his thing", in the order they were taken,
over about 45 seconds!!
 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Success!!
I was so happy for this little guy,
his persistence and determination really paid off!!

  1. Boy were you surprised, I was less than five feet away from you if I was with you.

  2. What a wonderful series of shots of the Nuthatch. Perhaps in future you should go outside to photograph the birds. They all would get used to you. Have a lovely weekend

  3. I love it when I am accepted as part of the landscape and the birds totally ignore me..(doesn't happen much, but when it does...I am one happy clicker!)

  4. Debbie, I just looked through all the other pages on your blog 'cause I'm thinking of something similar. You have a very lovely home (and look extremely well organized)! Your bird pictures are outstanding! Love your series on the Tufted Titmouse today. I've only ever seen one in my life; they hardly ever come this far north.

  5. These are awesome! Beautiful lighting and feather detail! Great catch light in the eye, too! Even skittish birds will come surprisingly close if we remain still.

  12. I dearly wish I could take better pictures of things that move, especially birds, but I'm just terrible at it. That's why I like coming across blogs like this.

  19. Wow, what a fun series of "being cautious" before eating! Lovely snaps each one.

  20. Debbie, these are magnificent!
    I am guessing you were able to get so close, because they know you would never hurt them. ALSO... they know who provides the goodies!!! :-)

  21. They are sooooooooooo cute!

    I giggle like a girl when I get one on the feeder for a while. Usually they are so skittish with the Blue jays and squirrels hanging around.

  22. Spectacular photos! My birds don't seem to mind when I stand near the feeders, but once the camera comes out, they act like I've got a shotgun pointed at them.

  23. He's adorable. Looked to be a bit confused by the peanuts but by the end I think he had it figured out.
