My first bird photos of the winter – enjoy!

So birds.

I haven’t had the time lately to watch and take photos. But yesterday and today there has been such a flurry of activity around our feeder I had to set aside five minutes and grab some photographs.

My favorite shots are action. Birds in the air – flying, landing, taking off – are almost impossible to capture without time, patience, a tripod, a good telephoto lens, and luck. I tend to have very little of the aforementioned at my disposal, so I am genuinely grateful to have snagged at least these.

This reminds me of the (Matthew 6) reading we had this morning in the early men’s group. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”

Thank you, most awesome God, for the beauty and the inspiration of your creation. – DEREK
