Rainy and Cloudy Day Backyard Birds

OK, it is not rare or unusual, BUT . . .it was taken on a dark and cloudy day! I finally figured out that I can take pictures without full noonday sun and a cloudless sky! Eureka!

Everyone else already knows how to do this, so I won't describe the process.

Didn't the colors come out nice?

Like the Mohawk 'do?

This was taken through the skylight (which is filthy. How do you clean the outside, anyway?)

My first rainy day picture. (I've improved somewhat since.)

Rainy day, also.

The junco's tail gives a clue to what I'm doing differently!

  1. I have been over run with Blue Jays this fall, 10 at a time thrashing through the feeders spilling seed! Hogs! They are so pretty though, and gregarious.


I love positive comments, critical comments,and corrections most of all!
