Ruby Tuesday - Curiosity And The Chickadee

I have been trying for weeks to catch these quick little birds in flight. Hooray!

Hummmm?
~Going For It~

We learned to be patient observers like the owl. We learned cleverness from the crow, and courage from the jay, who will attack an owl ten times its size to drive it off its territory. But above all of them ranked the chickadee because of its indomitable spirit.

  3. I like your indomitable spirit as well. Being a bird photographer must be a real challenge, but you really made it!

  4. Hey Madill, Tulsa here, great shots of the bird. I have tried but I don't have the patience nor the skill necessary to get shots like yours.

  5. Hi Jackie, your bird is really cute, but i love more your feeders. This is the first time i see this very practical design and don't have to be bought. Maybe i should try that on our mango tree!

  9. Lovely - we call those birds "coal tits" - they used to visit the bird feeder outside my window at our old house. Moved since to a 3rd floor apartment and that's one of the few things I miss - by the way we're in the UK not Canada.

  13. Great images, I have found birds terrible models in general, they just won't cooperate with my plans ;)

  14. What a coincidence! I have probably the same kind of tit in my garden. It's probably a coal-tit!
    Thanks for your comment on the abdication of our Queen in favour of her son Willem-Alexander.
    I don't think British Queen Elisabeth will ever abdicate. In the UK the tradition is: The king/queen is dead, long live the king. In my country it is tradition that the ruling queen abdicates. Queen Wilhelmina started this tradition.Her forefathers,however, ruled till the end of their lives.

  16. Hi Ruby, thank u for visiting my scavenger hunt blog post and for your lovely comment

  17. Nice picture - I like these little yard-birds.

    "girt" means surrounded by or encircled - so Australia (an island!) is encircled by sea - now that is not all that profound really!

  19. so sweet, great photos. i have seen Jay's diving on cats and dogs, they are fearless. when i saw patient observers in the quote, i thought this is so true now that i have a camera. i just came in from a photo shoot with our powder puff. the bees are asleep so that allowed me to look closely. i found 4 things i had never seen by slowly checking the tree... thanks for the complements on my shadow shots. my kitchen is full of sunlight this time of the year and the shadows call me

  27. Thank you all so very much. I live in Oklahoma and we are experiencing storms today. I must shut down for now as a thunderstorm is moving in.

    I'll come back online as soon as the storms have moved through.

    Thanks bunches to everyone!
