… a good place to reflect and gather your thoughts away from the cacophony of life. Saturday I went for a good walk and ended up at a friends home for a visit and to shoot some birds. Mostly I was trying to get finches in flight and they were swarming like bees around one of his feeders. It was pure joy as I triggered bursts of shots in the hopes of getting some in flight and in focus. I ended up with about 900 shots in the hour I was there and hope for at least a few good ones. At present there are 99 shots remaining that have not hit the bit bucket, but more will be going as I reflect on how well they will look when blown up to a reasonable size; probably less than 20 will make the final cut and this nonflight shot is one of them. Eric pointed her out as she landed on this precarious twig. Dozens of others were milling around the feeder, but she took a break for a while before re-joining the fray.
