Love Story






I had intended to get a lot done today but
I couldn't!  Not when this was the scene out my
window as I sat at my desk!

  3. Beautifully captured Betsy. All it wants now is full wrap round stereo sound of Andy Williams singing his Love Story son.
    Did you use a telephoto lense?

    1. I've watched them for two weeks and could never get photos of him feeding her. They were always hidden behind branches! Today, finally, they were in the perfect spot. Yes, I zoomed in on them. They look like they were posing! haha.

      Andy Williams! ♪♪♪

    2. I've been looking at them again, Betsy.
      The way you have focussed on them with the blurred foreground leaves and flowers against a blurred background is highly effective. Am I trying to say, clever depth of focus planning! Great shots! I think good enough for any magazine - why not try to publish them in a birdy mag?

    3. Well, thanks, Ed! I may try that some time! I was just so pleased to capture their little love affair. And the lighting was perfect this morning, too.

    4. And he is quite smitten with her, I think! He even combed his mohawk down for the dinner date! haha.

    5. Perhaps we can knickname him Brian, since he has a mohawk. Who shall she be I wonder?

  13. I love this! You captured it perfectly, Betsy. Such a sweet kiss. You really must publish these somewhere... birdies and kitties both. Such patience, but a well-deserved reward in the end!

    And... ahem... I am a redhead... lol!
