Nice, Donna. Get your ever-so-nice hubby to drive a metal fence post into the ground near the feeder, and then strap a tree branch to that so your birds will have a natural place to land near the feeder, and I think you can get some awesome shots, minus the feeder!! break some cedar branches ( I have one in my yard) or some nice nandina with red berries or just some dead looking branches and use duct tape to attach them to the metal fence post...and I think you will get some really nice shots!! all the while relaxing in your bedroom with a cuppa to boot!!

How far away were you from these? I love that dove!!

First off Donna, these arefantastic shots!! you have really improved your skills with that new camera!

As for mounting a branch next to the feeder.. Try using one of those cheap flag pole holders, the ones that can be ratcheted up and down to adjust the perpendicular angle. I mounted one of these on a fence post next to a feeder in my back yard. The holder makes it easy to adjust the branch and change it out if you want a different look.
