Why I Wake Early

"Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness."
-- Mary Oliver

These are just a few of my favorite photos I've taken over the last few weeks. Birds are definitely my go-to models! ;-) The hummingbirds have left for the summer but I'm finding new birds to photograph in their place. 

All of these birds are giving me great inspiration in my art as well. More on that front soon. I hope you are all enjoying the change in season. I know I am!

I suppose it was difficult to capture the birds in the right moment. The first ones look like painted. Beautiful : )

Martin: Yes, it took quite a while and many photos before I was able to get a few that I really liked. But it was worth it. :)

I'm not a true bird watcher, but I love sitting and listening to them and watching them flit around. Beautiful photos!

Pam Tucker said...

Bill: I'm beginning to appreciate them more as I try to photograph them. They are fascinating! :)

As Martin commented, the first photo could pass as a painting.

I love watching birds; in flight; on the ground foraging for insects; in trees chattering away, and in flocks as they head south for the winter.

You have done a beautiful job of capturing them - wonderful reference pieces too!

Cheers, Jenny
