Fall a Glorious Season

Canadian Geese

Fall A Glorious Season – Canadian Geese

Thanks giving weekend here in Canada allowed time for a walk in the park and the opportunity to capture the beginnings of a glorious season. When we hear the call of the Canadian geese overhead we know that it’s either spring or fall. In either case it is beautiful.

Was walking in a park when I spotted this woodpecker in a tree. I followed him for a bit until I was able to get a picture of him. Love the colors in this picture and the contrast the bird brings to white flowers and blue sky.

Please feel free to submit any questions and I will do my best to answer them. I received a question from “ogletterhead” who blogs over at http://ogletterhead.wordpress.com/ and the question is “What’s ur advice in taking picture in the dark?”. I will post a complete answer Monday, thanks again for the question.

I often see Blue Jays, however they tend to shy away from me when I raise my camera. I know a few people like that too. Just like people I find that it takes time, patience and trust before they warm up to you. Once they do you are able to get some great shots. Here are a couple of subjects that I am working with.
Using a Canon 550D with a telephoto lens 70-300.

Please take a moment to leave me your comments or critiques.

With every new day there is a chance for a fresh start, a new hope. Some days it’s nice to wakeup early and get going, have a great day all.

While walking the dog on a new path I came across this bird, I was able to approach it and got really close. I am always surprised how some birds have little to no fear and will allow someone to approach them. This bird obviously works well with its photographer. 🙂

Please leave me your comments or critiques.

I was able to photography this from my deck at home. These two birds were sharing a piece of fruit taken from the tree.

Bird on a Trail

On a recent hike in the woods I brought with me some birdseed. This worked out really well as it allowed me to get close to take several nice shots of the birds up close. Even got the birds to eat out of our hands, a really nice experience.
