Due to the weather, I wasn’t able to go on a walk on this day, but decided to see how this camera would perform in dim light, through a streaked window pane and in blowing snow.
I know that with my usual camera that I wouldn’t have had one usable photograph. Today I did.
Here are my 5 most frequent winter customers:
House Sparrows seem unaware of the concept of “one at a time.”
Because I put sunflower seed with NO shell in the feeder, it all gets eaten and little falls to the ground so I don’t get many squirrels:
I was greatly surprised and happy to have the camera in my hands when this beauty made a 3 second appearance:
When all aloud the wind doth blow,
And coughing drowns the parson’s saw,
And birds sit brooding in the snow,
And Marian’s nose looks red and raw
When roasted crabs hiss in the bowl,
Then nightly sings the staring owl,
Tu-whit, tu-who: a merry note,
While greasy Joan doth keel the pot. – Shakespeare
