Looking at You


I have been good about staying off my feet as much as possible but getting a terrible case of cabin fever.  Thus I am spending more time at the computer with my files of photos.  This little chickadee comes regularly along with his 'mates' to the water dish and the suet feeder.  I took this photo of him hanging off the feeder and then photo-shopped it (somewhat badly as an expert can tell certainly tell you) so that it looked more "natural."  Although I have seen them in the cedar trees, I do not think they eat cedar berries as this photo might falsely indicate.

Did the doc give you one of those rolling knee scooters. You can get everywhere using them.

Great bird. I'd never know.

Thank you Tabor. Made me all kinds of happy.
I think tomorrow I'm heading out in search of some bird bliss.

Terrific photos. Fun to go back through the files. I find that my photo archive, which I keep chronologically, is a great way to enhance my memory of what I saw.

I do not use photoshop myself so can not judge if it is good or bad, but it appeals to the eye!

It's majestic how the bird looks at me :)

Who knew a chickadee could act better than Humphrey Bogart? Your timing is impeccable, dear Tabor! I just love the face he made. =D
