There is only a little plant life left around the Path but the bird population has been as active as ever. Keeping the feeders clean and filled is keeping me active outside and gives me a focus for the camera.
For some reason the cardinal pair are camera shy. As soon as I step outside of the screened porch, camera in hand, they will fly away. If I am working with the shovel or clippers, they ignore me.
They are so faithful to come by the garden many times throughout the day. Shooting through the screen is challenging but it is the only way to capture them in a photograph.
The titmice are much less concerned with my presence and my camera. I just love when four or five of these will flutter through the sprinkler on a warm day. Those days will be coming again soon.
