Introducing....


Just like people, some birds photograph better than others. And some birds are camera hogs, just like some people, just hamming it up and jumping right in front of the camera. So here are a few pictures to introduce four birds from our new flock. Each one, Claire, Hans, Livian and Dandilion all love to get their picture taken. I took a ton of pictures, and these four kept getting right in front of me over and over again.



There is one bird I am totally in love with, Harry, and he is so handsome, but he will not let me get a good picture! I think partly it's because he's so active and young. He's curious though. He gets close, looks at me and twitches his tail feathers, and as soon as I focus...he's gone. I'm going to keep working on it though, and you'll see what I mean! He's devilishly attractive.




There are nine birds in all to our gang. Hans has his Eva, and Livian has her guy Atlas, and the rest are "single". I'll be curious in the Spring who pairs up and if there will be any babies. I hope so!

They are so colorful and sweet. I forgot until this minute what a great photographer you are as well.

Hans is definetly my kind of guy, a little rugged but with a "come hither" look.
