Every day along the way I see Bluebirds, Robins, Sparrows, and Pigeons. I hear the beautiful songs of unknown birds in the trees overhead. The day I witnessed a family of Geese, parents and children crossing the street in size order, I made it my mission to capture some of this beauty on film. Now I carry my camera on every morning walk with the hope of seeing the Geese again so I could take a family photo, or perhaps get some pictures of the other birds I see every day.
Maybe it's my photo skills, or my walking buddy who's quick movements tend to send the birds into flight, that are making this more difficult but I have yet to successfully photograph a single bird. Instead of the goose family perfectly lined up for a beautiful photo they have been hiding among the tall grass behind a fence. Birds are gone in a flash before I can snap a picture. Not one successful photo.
But the squirrels, they love the camera. Yes, even when my puppy friend sends them scurrying up a tree they stop and pose! Long enough for me to get a one-handed shot with my small camera:
Although I have yet to successfully photograph a bird (though I am still trying!) I am happy to know the squirrels will always pose for the camera.
