Back To The Past Year

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 341 is The Camera. I'm going back into time for this one, because I don't have a second camera with me (and because I have some shots of an old camera from 2012 on this laptop).

Here's a picture of my Canon G12 from January, 2012 (taken with my even older Canon A710):

And here's a shot of that bird through the G12 (I was using a remote, that plus the tripod let me get close to the shy birds on the feeder):

Back to the present! I've seen some Red-winged Blackbirds fledglings by the ponds above Lake Siri. I thought at last I had a great shot of one, but I download it and his/her fuzzy downy fledgling face was behind a leaf. Oh well (pic taken with my Canon G15)...

I'm also linking to Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday 155.

Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

I've often wondered about your setup, thunder - interesting stuff.

That little blackbird knew exactly when to hide his head!

So that's how you do it... it seems i need to rethink my approach.

We have red-bellies bringing fledglings to the feeders. And nobody gets in their way not even the jays.... Michelle

A very handsome woodpecker! And a great shot of him. And I like the fledgling, even without a head!

Tripods and remotes are too technical for me although they would be useful for birds in my garden too.
