Default Birds of a different feather

I've been busy helping someone I know move recently so haven't had much time to take pictures of any sort. But I did manage to grab my camera between opening boxes and putting together furniture.

Here's one bird I managed to get with a wide angle lens. I wanted to re-take it with something longer and faster, but didn't quite get around to it.



Then later on, this little fellow decided to check out what was happening on the other side of the glass and to mock me.

Good of you to help someone with one of the most stressful jobs.
Nice shots and what a beautiful statue.

The first one reminds me of a sculpture at Bok Tower Gardens, I tried to get a shot of it but at the time all I had was a long lens and it didn't come out very well. The second one sure is cute!

You were smart to have brought your camera. I very often leave my camera home, and over the years have missed several great shots because of that.

I didn't manage any great shots, but I had a great time taking pictures of boxes. Full boxes, empty boxes and broken down boxes. The fish-eye worked really well for those.

I want to re-take the statue of the great blue heron again, I'm sure I can do better than this one. It's a pretty statue.
