Sometimes one can't get outdoors but still want to take pictures of animals and birds.
 
For instance, sometimes I can't move too well so I'm confined to a chair by the window. I have my camera near me on a table, bird feeders about 10 feet from the window, and a stump set up 3 feet from the window. Sometimes I will have the camera on a tripod, with a remote cord, set up near the window, prefocused. When a bird lands on the stump and I know it is in the prefocused spot, I start taking  Diane Krouse pictures with the remote cord. Having a camera take can take 5 frames helps, because sometimes one can get an unexpected good shot or get one out of 5 good shots. It is not often that I can get 5 good shots in a row because the bird does move around and end up with a shot with no bird in it, if he is so quick and flies off before the shot is fired.
 
 
I don't think one has to be outdoors to get outdoor shots.

There are so many new sandbars on the Cape Cod beaches because of the ferocious winter storms that moved the sand everywhere. It was a bit unnerving to watch this family wade through the water out to the sandbar yesterday. It was very cool on the beach. We had our winter jackets on with the … Continue reading Watch Out For Those New Sandbars At the Cape Cod Beaches!

The Goldfinches Are Turning Vibrant Yellow On Cape Cod

It’s so much fun to watch the Goldfinches as they change from a drab yellowy-brown in the winter to a bright yellow for the summer. These two Goldfinches were getting a drink at our bird bath. They lean down and get a drink of water and then put their heads back and swallow. So cute, … Continue reading The Goldfinches Are Turning Vibrant Yellow On Cape Cod
