I come unto you in the spirit of meekness...I Corinthians 4: 21

This was shot at 5:30 PM tonight when it was getting dark and I used flash with night portrait in the scene mode. The old rolled glass doesn't do badly with flash but of course needed to be close to the window to prevent glare. There was some food residue on the glass from where the birds had been pecking on it which made it necessary to clone out the distracting spots in photo shop.

The Chickadees dearly love their window feeder which is in line with our kitchen sink. We've had a number of small birds come to eat there and they are happy they don't have to share with the squirrels who are content with their own feeder behind the south side of our house. It solves a lot of problems in the world of nature!!! It also makes the chore of washing dishes much more pleasant when I can watch the pretty birds through the window as they are enjoying their meal...Some of the bigger birds are too big for the window feeder unfortunately, and they take their chances with sharing with the squirrels on the other feeder.

Thank you JPG staff for spotlighting this picture...Since I shot this picture in 2012...All the
birds now share the bigger wooden feeder on the south side of the house. The little plastic feeder here we did have in back of the rolled glass window got eventually discovered by the red squirrels who broke it down. I appreciate the spotlight received 9/30/ 2016. Thank you.

    Another great one and yet, that rolled glass is making a mighty nice filter for the little chickadees and other visitors. I would much rather see these chickadees than those truckloads of house finches.
