A lovely, but quite chilly Valentine’s day brought much love to the manor. Spending an afternoon out with feathered friends, a total of 30 species flew about.
Who knows what else I may find tomorrow.
How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.
Happy valentine’s! 🙂
Thank you Andy ! Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s weekend too.
It was great! thank you 🙂 🙂
I’m interested that you have moved from a Canon 7D to 5D Mark III and are concentrating on the L series lenses. You appear to shoot the subjects that attract me as well. I think I’ll be checking in from time to time. My blog is just getting going but my camera bag is starting to look like yours. Happy Shooting!
I found the quality of images to be far superior with the 5D Mark III compared to the 7D. When you crop, the image holds up quite well with the full-frame camera. Indeed, if one can get the “L” lenses, it is well worth it. Great meeting you Colleen!
So cute btw that there’s an itty bitty bird while these large ones just flutter about lol 🙂
You have it figured out ! Smart Andy. 😉
What gorgeous shots! That action one is just stunning. Happy Valentines to you!!
My dearest kindred spirit. Oh how it warms the heart to see you. I hope all is going well with you. Assuming you’re still in FLA? I’m dreaming of a bird photography five day conference thingy in St. Augustine mid-April. Maybe…. ??
Lol I didn’t finish! I was gonna mention the Space Coast birding festival… I missed it though!!
Aarrgh..I want to go to Florida to bird !!
Heeeee I don’t blame you, with all your cold and snow! I’m living between there and Atlanta now, and uhhhh… I’m still wondering why they call Atlanta “the South” – fibbers!!
Great group you spotted! Hope everyone is staying warm.
Hardly Phil ! It’s been so bitter cold today. I just couldn’t do much but just poke my head out the door and say “NO WAY !!”
How lovely, Emily. The little thrush and the sparrows are so sweet. 🙂
They truly are. I was so thrilled to see the thrush. Saw her again today. Thank you so much Sylvia.
Ah a nice and comfortable set of images when there’s nothing comfortable about being outside right now, or yesterday!!! 😉 I can’t say I’ve ever seen a Red Fox Sparrow, he’s a cool little guy. You make me look forward to the coming migrations. Happy Valentine’s Day!
You keep getting me excited about things that are to come. Oh the promise of spring. Hope you’re staying warm today.
Trying to stay warm (as long as I don’t have to be outside much ;)).
Well good then we reciprocate the excitement.
Fabulous! A great way to spend Valentine’s 🙂
Thank you so much Sarah. I agree, couldn’t have been a better day. Happy Valentines to you.
lol he’s probably going ‘Eh, You go ahead I’ll just relax down here’ 😀
I can’t get my fiancé out in this weather much! He doesn’t do cold 😉 We went to the cinema but it was raining outside anyway!
Same here..can’t get him out for anything, rain or shine. Guess it’s up to us girls to keep ourselves entertained. 🙂
Lol 😉 They don’t know what they’re missing!!
I was busy socialising with my Spanish family on Valentine’s Day, so didn’t really celebrate it. Hope you had a wonderful day. Thanks for the beautiful inspiring words of V. Hugo. Nice shots.
