My wife wasn’t feeling well this weekend. But when she woke up this morning I made a point of mentioning how fascinating it was to watch the dozen or so birds feeding outside our kitchen window. Then turned to me and said, “You know, birds make landings too”. Oh, wow! Why didn’t I think of that? Seriously, why didn’t I?

I set my camera up inside the sliding door and patiently took two hundred photos. It was a challenge. Small birds move very quickly. I had a lot of shots with nothing in the frame. And at first many of the images were blurry. I upped the shutter speed and kept trying. It’s not properly focused and the depth of field is very narrow but this is one of the best landing images I capture in that hour.
