Snowy Friday Backyard Birds

If you remember I was very envious that Tom got to photograph our birds in the backyard on each of days for the President's birthdays. Well today...Hehe...while Tom was using the snow blower this morning I was using his 300mm f2.8 lens on the deck. I just love these photos with the snowflakes coming down! Here are photos that I took today in the snow...

This little downey woodpecker landed so close to me I almost was too close to focus (I had to lean back a little)

I was playing around with this image in photoshop and came up with the Black and White and Red.
I apply this affect a lot for our brides and I am always silently ecstatic when I get to a Bride's house and see color in her bouqet. I know that white flowers with her white dress is always classic but I miss the opportunity to be able to apply this selected color technique.

This Tufted Titmouse just posed for me.

Tom put our Christmas tree out back when we took it down so that we could use it for our photos. The entrie time that I was outside only this one bird landed on it (it was very close to me and there was no food near it) but I just love the little gal (female Junco) on the evergreen with the snow.

4 photos of male Juncos
