We are having a beautiful, light snowfall taking away the ugliness of mud that we had for Christmas eve and day. The trees are dusted and the air is still. The birds are taking advantage of the feeders today in large flocks. I watched them make their way to the ash tree that is next to the feeders 10 and 20 at a time then fight for position on the perches.
Initially I just had my camera on automatic but the more I watched them flit from tree to ground to feeder I decided to up my shutter speed to photograph them in flight. To stop the action of their wings.
The holidays are over – today is for me. As much as I love having family surround me for the weeks around the holidays I really enjoy the day after when it’s quiet. It’s a time I savor and today has been perfect.
