Birding

Baltimore Oriole at Eagle Creek, Indianapolis

Birding is a fairly new adventure encouraged by a friend with a new camera and love of birds. So we are spending this year trying to shoot birds – in digital.

Yellow Warbler at Eagle Creek, Indianapolis

I am learning it is much harder than butterflies, funny enough. Mostly because they like to hide behind leaves and branches as they look you over (and scold). However, the thrill of seeing and identifying a new specie (new to me) gets in the blood.

One day I hope to be able to produce stunning photos, but half the fun is the learning and the sharing of the experience. The other half is in capturing that moment when I am eye to eye with nature, even if it is comes out fuzzy or not perfectly lit.
