    Default Watch the birdie..

    These were pics I took using my old SLR [*gasp* you mean film?!?!] Canon with a telephoto lens. No auto anything. Then scanned the images using a friend's scanner.

    Zoomed in too much with the scanner on this one -- the picture lost sharpness. This is one that I think I will get "blown up" at a photo store. A swallow in flight.




    Hmmmm, if this is a "married couple", wonder which is the wife? LOL




    Not sure what I could have done to get a better pic here. Mama didn't like me getting too close



    This heron was at the manmade pond behind my apt doing some fishing




    This shot I really like though, again, the pic here suffered when I zoomed in using the scanner. I'm also thinking of getting this one cropped & blown up at a camera shop

    It's obvious that the wife is the one having to listen to her husband whine about what a hard day he had at work while all she had to do was stay home, build a nest, give birth, sit on the eggs, hatch the eggs and protect the babies.....
