19Dec21 photos: more birds!

The other morning, we woke up to frost. This happens every winter sometimes, but it’s not nearly daily.

The roofs and grass (lawns, parks, etc.) were lightly coated. As I was returning from dropping Rocket Kid off at school, I noticed that our garage roof had one stripe across it that was thawed and the rest was still frosty and it was interesting to look at. So I grabbed a step stool and the Nikon and went out.

I was not tall enough even with the step stool to be at the angle I wanted, but pictures of the roof weren’t worth dragging out the ladder. So I took a few from where I was, and they weren’t all that exciting and didn’t look much like what I was picturing in my head when I headed out there in the first place.

While I was out there, a hummingbird came back to visit the tree again! I was delighted and a bit surprised, since it was so cold.

Other birds also came by to rest for a moment.

I also thought it might be neat to take some shots straight up into the tree. I was incorrect hahaha

That’s a thing I love about digital photography, though. I can start with “I wonder if that would look good” and try it and if it doesn’t, it doesn’t really matter.

And also … I’m sure there’s a way to frame that shot so that it looks interesting and I just haven’t figured it out yet.

Last, we have a lovely hanging succulent by the front door and I caught a piece of it behind a post.
