January 26th - Where'd They Go?

OK, so this morning when I was getting my first cup of coffee, I saw some birds out the back window. Then when I came back to make some breakfast I saw some birds out the back window. Then when I was poking around looking for what to make for lunch, I saw... well you probably get the idea. Anyway, it wasn't until mid afternoon that I finally thought, "Wow, I should shoot some birds for today's photo!". But now I didn't see any out there. So I put out some Bird Attractant (you can see that sprinkled on top of the stump), and set up my camera and got everything all set and then waited. And waited. And waited some more. (cue the crickets...) I guess they were all early birds today and I was just a bit late. So although you may have thought you saw a bird when you first looked at this photo - look again. There's no bird there. 1/160th sec. f/4.5 iso 200


  1. Cue crickets! Made me LOL. BTW, Nice rule of thirds use where the bird ain't.

    IMHO, YMMV when it comes to birds.

    TTYL :)

  2. DBD.


  3. Hey, Jan reminded me that our bird attractant was recalled because it was formulated over seas and their non-existent QA allowed in trace amounts of Cat Attractant too.

    Maybe the birds are wise to that?

  4. Ah maybe so. There's still no birds out there today either...
