birds and more birds

A few weeks ago I installed a bird feeder just to see what would happen. Oh boy, did we get birds. The first few days they were all very skittish and it was just about impossible to get a picture. Now things seem to settle down an I get get to within 35 feet or so.

Here aree a few from the last few days, All with 8800 and TC-E15ED

This guy looks like he is smelling the flowers, right? No, nothing that romantic. He is catching bees, wasps, flies and whatever other critters he can get a hold of. It's quiet funny to watch and his success rate is better than mine and I'm only trying to take pictures of them.

Let me know what you think and do take care.
