A friend asked me this week if I just sit lay on the dock all day waiting for birds to come by to photograph. . . .
Well, Um. . . .Ya! I do! Actually!
Here is my afternoon spot to try to capture the Warblers in the tree. I’ve yet to get one. . . .
Temperpedic Mattress and a cozy pillow with a book and coffee. I’m trying to learn the bird calls. If I lift my head, the calls change. If the boys come out, their calls REALLY freak out. When the coast is clear in their site they call their mate/buddy back and forth. There seems to always be a lookout bird making the calls, directing traffic. Really interesting!
In the morning I get dressed in my best birding outfit and sit on the dock waiting for the birds to fly by. I REALLY want to get a shot of a flying low over the water with the mirror reflection. Between 6 and 9ish the lake is flat and calm. So far, they fly in so quietly I do not hear them, or I’m not paying attention from reading my book.
