Given I am borrowing a camera till I get a new Canon SX40 to replace the one Lake Superior’s ice claimed yesterday, I decided to not try anything tricky this morning. It is challenging learning settings on someone else’s camera. Thus, I positioned myself under our bird-feeders in the -6F sunny weather and waited. As the birds seem to recognize me as Mr. Food Provider, within a short period of time they obliged my desired to take photos from a few feet away … thus today’s photo … blinking bird. I have to admit I had never seen a nuthatches eyelid before! Burst mode is a great resource. I have included two photos of today’s bird … one eyes open and looking at me, and blinking!
