Baby bluebirds!

Hey, remember these guys ?  Well, guess what they did?  They had a little brood of 5 babies (right in the hitch of the 5th wheel!).  It was a challenging to take pictures, there wasn’t much room to maneuver the lens and no way to set up the tripod.  The pictures aren’t as crisp as I would like, but anyways, here they are!

Here you can see all 5 chicks.

Pictures of snow

I’ve been going through a bunch of my older pictures, and it turns out that I take a lot of pictures of snow. Maybe it’s because I grew up with snow half the year, maybe I like the crispness of the snow, or maybe (since it is around for half the year) it’s just what I have to photograph!

Snow is tricky, though. White on white? A photographers nightmare! It can be hard to try and somehow work contrast in the shot, and it can be impossible to fix after the fact. That won’t stop me from trying! 🙂
