Default There Are Times You're NOT Going to Get Bird Photos

For some reason, the birds didn't want to come to my feeder this afternoon....

As my wife would say: "Who needs pictures of birds when you can take pictures of cats?"

I have the same problem - new neighbors with two cats who find our yard more interesting than their own! And my wife won't let me sting them with a BB gun - "cruelty to animals" she says. And what about the birds they hunt?

This one is a hit, Paul! Lovely! It really meets the motto "to take pictures about something, not of something".

Hey, Paul.
Both great shots but, that first one is hysterical! It should win a photo contest somewhere.
