Although the toasty temperatures might suggest an early Summer, Spring has definitely staked a claim here in Texas.
The flighty birds and chatty squirrels have told me so. Well, to be honest, we didn’t actually sit down and have a human to beast gab fest. They don’t exactly include me in their get-togethers. (haters)
We have so many different kinds of the feathered fowl flitting through the tree branches and hopping on the grass in the backyard. A regular avian convention of sorts. One of my favorites though, is the cheery cardinal. And it is definitely cardinal season in the Charming Zebra backyard. These brightly colored birds are everywhere and look quite stunning next to the back drop of the green grass and verdant tree branches. Calling in that chirpy, whistling way to their other birdie chums. Therefore, I’ve been on a quest with my camera for awhile now to capture the perfect photo of these crimson winged warblers. Unfortunately though, the cardinals have absolutely no interest in striking a pose for me. None whatsoever. Consequently, I’ve spiraled down into the undignified world of bird paparazzi. (Shameful, I know.) So now my time is spent lurking about with my long lens, shooting out of focus images through the trees of unsuspecting birds.
All in the name of blogging, of course.
So what about you? Have you ever found yourself (and your camera) slipping into paparazzi mode and chasing an unwilling subject? (Human, animal or freshly painted dresser?)
