“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

  6. Your portraits are so beautiful! They should be glossy and in National Geographic! They really show the personality of each bird!

  9. Nice work Anni. I often think I should shoot in black & white sometimes. But then I forget, especially when I'm shooting birds. I'm gonna try harder now as I have my new camera.

    Have a great week.

  21. Gorgeous B&W shots, Anni! Well, I hope all has been good for you, health-wise and that you had a blessed Christmas. I am back, it seems, and I plan to post on the Bird d'Pot this weekend as well. Got a nice shot of a woodpecker on my deck right when I was posting on WBW yesterday! Took the picture from my seat on the sofa through the back window! :-) LOVE our new house! Been snowed in since we moved in...I don't know if you've seen my posts...but we are happy & doing well. Look forward to getting out and about and taking lots of pictures when the worst of this is over! Take care!
