Windows

Mischief would be interested for a minute, then decide to watch the birds instead....but Blondie Rumpleteaser, my normally "can't keep her quiet" chatterbox, sat silently for almost 30 minutes watching the grasshopper on the top of that post, going about his grasshopper'ing.





Yes, Skimbleshanks the Hobo is still trying to catch a hummingbird at the window

"Humblerbird!!! Daddy, come open some window!"


"Nyaaa nyaaa! Here, kitty kitty..."


Edit to add: Poor Hobo finally gave up and retired to his shelf on the other side of the kitchen....but he still keeps a close eye on the happenings at the feeder

Great shot of the hummingbird! How did you manage to get it so crisp and clear in mid-flight??

I got that using a Nikon D50 digital SLR, on manual focus and shooting 5 frames per second. I finally got around to buying a soft case for the camera so I can keep it handy. I'd been keeping it in an aluminum case and just using it for "posed" shots, and just using a little sony camera around the house. Then, it occurred to me that I could probably get some really good pics of the kits if I kept the good camera close by
