Naturally Photogenic...

birds are...
they just look good on camera

Big Red was late this morning...
he didn't start crowing till after 5 am


yesterday, my good friends, L. and V. came back from the US...
and brought my new camera with them
thank you so much, sweet friends!!
I am thrilled!

it is the best camera (Panasonic DMC-FZ40)...
I've ever owned and there was no time wasted...
in using it

the bird photos today are from my new camera...
and granted...
I have a lot to learn about photographing

just an amateur...
but, having a great time snapping shots

this little female bird is very tiny...
and very wild...
it's hard to get a real close-up...
but, the camera did pretty good at bringing in the bird

I don't know what bird it is but...
the male is black and makes a most wonderful warbling sound


of course...
we have the ever present mourning doves that just love our papaya trees...
I can get a little closer to them


the top one is male...
he has a bit of blue on top of his head

the one below is a female...
I believe they are a pair as they sat close to each other

aren't they just wonderful?


oh yeah, Big Red...
you sure are pretty, too

God didn't forget you


Make a joyful noise unto the Lord,
all the earth:
make a loud noise,
and rejoice,
and sing praise.
Psalm 98:4

May your day, or night be filled with God's grace.

  2. OurCrazyFarm, it's a Panasonic DMC-FZ40. I liked the reviews on it and decided it would do the job for an amateur without spending too much.

  7. David, I think the roo is a Dorking or Leghorn...maybe even a Welsummer. They are very similar to mine so, take your pick :) Here, they are just called chickens.
