Blue Monday #33: "Birds In The Back Yard II"


"Stealth Birds"
Raleigh, NC - February 2009 (Click to embiggen)


I managed to sneak up on these two before they knew it and get a few shots of them before they spooked and flew off. Pretty stealthy, huh?Violence UnSilenced

Stealthy and extremely nice. I love the curves of branches cris-crossing against the blue sky.

You didn't whistle them off did ya? :P

Very stealth photography. Birds are not easy, they get spooked so quickly.

Way to go!

I have only begun trying to snatch pictures of the many feathered friends around here. Too often I give myself away before getting the shot.

Happy Monday!
