Nutkin Action Photo

My contribution to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #98. And also to Michelle's Nature Notes (#348).




The people who live at this house put out seeds on their front walk. As one comes past the bushes on the sidewalk, all the critters spring into action. Usually they're all gone before I can snap anything, but this time I came by with the camera on and just snapped the shutter as soon as I passed the last bush.

Birdie Bush Update

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 365 is Lens. Here is a picture of my Canon G15 lens (along with the rest of it, the remote shutter, and my tripod).

I'm also contributing to Michelle's Nature Notes (#348). We had no seed here in D.C., so I put out some whole wheat bread for the birds in the birdie bush.

I guessed the sparrows would like it the more, but I think the cardinals actually ate most of it. I put a slice on a branch, but they pecked it onto the ground and seemed more comfortable getting it there. I also put out some Granny Smith apple cores. They liked those, too.

Yesterday, I was able to get some birdseed:


I'm sticking with the birdie bush for TexWiscGirl's Good Fences 97. The bush is as full of birds as I've ever seen it. (By the way, this is my current guess at its identification.)
