Another I've never seen.
Light, well you're the one who taught me to shoot in the rain!

I love the rain... But today was cold wind and snow in the air.. My second favourite weather condition to shoot in.

There is nothing like shooting wildlife in a blizzard. Sliding into the forest with the game and the light defused.. bouncing ... illuminating..

Nothing like it.

The red pole is a far north bird who comes down from the north to follow the food it needs for the winter.. Then returns come spring.

At the moment buttons are very elusive.. Thank goodness I'm a fast learn.

Beautiful RTH Shalu.
They're quite special to me, you might know I feed several every day.

Chicken, pork, beef and I shot 24 squirrels last year-none went to waste.

Why do so many Americans keep mistakenly calling a Coal Tit a 'Chickadee'?

Get it right!

:-)

Different species, Spencerphoto. :-) Chickadees and tits are all in the Paridae family, of course.


Canon 7D2 · 50 f/1.8 · 17-55 f/2.8 IS · 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM · 100 f/2.8 Macro · 100-400 L IS II
Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.
