  1. Super gallery of red feathered birds! I wanted to post a Downy but all my recent photos were females. No red there! Absolutely amazing shot getting the house finches fighting at the feeder. And you managed a photobomb by a goldfinch. LOL! Very nice! 🙂

    • I have no control over what the birds do in the pictures. My goal is to be in focus and hope they don’t just decide to leave. I was in the kitchen with Garry and there was a red-bellied woodpecker, a blue jay AND a cardinal on the feeders. I skulked into the dining room, picked up my camera, turned it on. They all flew away AS I turned it on. I can’t help but think this is personal.

      • I understand completely! I hope that each shot I aim at works in my favor too. It’s just awesome when I get home and look at them and something is super good. Most of the time, they are okay. I love the photobomb of the goldfinch. It’s like it did it on purpose. LOL! 🙂

        • The goldfinches are not afraid of me. Neither are the house finch. The cardinals aren’t afraid, but they don’t like my camera (too big? too beepy?) or it’s personal and they don’t like ME.\\

          Since I started shooting birds, I have NO control over how good the picture comes out, so it’s always a happy surprise when something comes out wonderful. I was looking at the “best” pictures from National Geographics and ALL of those “best” shots were happy accidents. They just found a good place to be and shot the hell out of it. And got some really GREAT pictures.

    • Thanks, Cee. That is the ONLY photo I’ve had printed and framed in the past few years. My walls are so full that if something goes up, something else comes down.

      I have a great online printing company. They are reasonably priced, fast, accurate. I’ve never gotten a bad or inaccurate print from them. They deliver very fast too. They don’t crop unless instructed by you. They print on paper, canvas (canvas prints look like paintings), aluminum and I think wood — and various other things in case you want cups or t-shirts (there are better places for fabric and other doodads). I’ve been using them for at least the past ten years and they keep getting better without becoming beyond my means.

  3. Love red birds! We have cardinals in our year all year long, and they bring so much joy, especially when the world is white here and they get to be real show-offs!
