Day 71 – Baby Birds

15 Jun

This one is for Duane (my brother) who reads my blog daily and always sends me awesome emails of amazing photos…it is nice when family is supportive of what you do isn’t it!!

These cute little guys were in a tree growing next to their deck and my mom pointed them out as soon as I got there and told me to go get my camera, yes the whole family tells me what to shoot! They were so cute but were so hard to shoot so I tried from several different angels with different lenses and these are a couple of the best shots. Duane asked if they were going to make my blog and I assured him they would:)

I have no clue what kind of birds they are so don’t expect that information, all I know is that they were adorable.

    How awesome! What a unique photographic opportunity, and you captured it with your usual panache. The first shot is my favorite πŸ™‚

    So cute! I love how they blend together but you see individual hungry beaks.

    Wow… in that first picture, you can see straight down the bird’s throat! Very cute pictures. I don’t think I’ve ever seen baby birds in real life. Pretty cool!

    Awesome! In the last photo, it looks like they are squishing one upside down underneath them. Poor baby! LOL

      LOL I didn’t even notice that, the kids kept saying THERE ARE FOUR and I couldn’t find the fourth!

    Oh you just stole my heart… look how sweet they are. Great shot Mindy.

    Great shot of the baby Robins. You could do one a day until they fledge. You’ll have to use a telephoto so they don’t leave the nest too early.. I like the first shot best as well…

    Awesome captures! It’s great that you family backing you all the way, must be a wonderful feeling! πŸ™‚

      Thank you Maggie, it is a great feeling and they are quite wonderful!

    yes Mindy they are baby robins, but today they finally left the nest. I’m sure we’ll have more next year.
