Monday, no walking…


These birds had a dinner party in our backyard. I spread some seeds on the railing for capturing actions. Then, I watched them through my lens and through the kitchen window; my finger was pressing the shutter release button halfway; hubby was holding his binocular.


Squirrel showed up without an invitation, as usual, and he was very hungry. “Hey, you are eating bird food! Be nice.”  He won’t stop eating.

Welcome, Ms. Blue Jet! How beautiful you are!


 She looked around, then landed on the railing.


“Stop shoot, Amy! People are eating.”


Ms. Dove, how did you get here?


Mr. Cardinal was late, but he indulged himself quickly.


“What are you looking at?”


A few feet away, Mr. Woodpecker parked on the tree enjoying his favorite loquat.


I didn’t have to walk at all to capture these fun photos.

Thank you so much for visiting! Happy Monday. 🙂

  1. Hi Amy,
    These are absolutely fantastic shots. You’re so patient, to keep watching the feeding spots through your lens. I don’t have that patience. All the more thanks to you for sharing.
    Happy Monday to you, too, and have a great week,


  2. Amy it looks like you were having quite the dinner party on the deck. What a variety of beautiful birds you have so close at hand. It sounds like your husband is a great helper in the photography/blog business.

    • I’m so privileged and honored to be your friend, Sriram! This is a beautiful spring that we have not had for a few years due to the drought. I don’t take for granted… Thank you for visiting and letting me share my small world.
      I truly love your “These painting are poetry…”. It’s so beautiful and poetic, yet so moving. Magic, indeed! 🙂


  5. you have some yard Amy – and my favorite shot is the one of the squirrel with the light in back of his tail – the curve and the hairs – it is very cool. But the whole feel of the nature walk was appreciated – and your birds – tweet – tweet so sweet. (cheesy – but hey…)
