It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at goodiesbaker@yahoo.com and I will be happy to provide you with one.

Here are a few shots from my self-imposed bird feeder shooting challenge. I think I’m going to set up a little blind with our ladder and an old tarp or blanket of some sort and see if I can’t get closer and get some shots of the other birds that visit. On this morning, only the chickadee and tufted titmouse would venture over with me standing there. Eventually I frightened them off as well with my presence.

I cropped all of these to square format to rid the photos of the distracting pole the feeder hangs from.

Great shots of them, though. They are very flighty and quick. I've not gotten a good shot of them yet. A blind would help greatly ... BTW, I need to buy some more bird food! :-)

awwwwwwwwwww I love my bird feeder as a source of photo's!

( to bad I have not filled it in ages LOL)

I sometimes site in a chair about 20 feet from the tree with camera ready and they eventually get use to me bing there, just don't move fast LOL.

A fine series of this beautiful bird. I get Nuthatches which are also gymnastic little creatures. A blind would be a big help. My feeders are next to my living room windows This means i must shoot through glass...not the best shooting conditions.

Birds - our little feathered friends. I only recognise the top one as Coal Tit (in the UK). I think that's right anyway. Keep it up.

These are lovely photos Micki. I gather the top one is the chickadee and the other two are the tufted titmouse? I don't know if we get either bird over here but they sure are lovely little birds. Do they both sing?

There is a certain something in your work that just makes me enjoy veiwing your images day in day out. Your consistency in posting up one awesome image after another to tell the truth is annoying (yes me jealous) LOL

I have a bird-table standing just in font of my window-kitchen too. Only one robin and some blue-tits come feeding among a bunch of sparrows. I took some shots of them but not so close.

Lovely shots Micki and a good bird shooting challenge.
