Week 45 by Becky
At our photo club meeting, this past Tuesday, we had a couple speakers come in to talk about "Birding Photography". Both are awesome bird photographers. Well, the opportunity presented itself for me to try my hand at a little bird photography. This Mockingbird has built a nest in a bush just off our front porch. She laid three eggs a few weeks ago. I checked them this morning and at least two have them have hatched. I told my son who came to look and that is when the mommy decided to fly over our heads to scare us away. I ran in the house to get my camera to see if I could catch her flying into the nest. This is her flying from one tree to the next. She wouldn't come near the nest until I went inside. The lens I used was a 18-200mm and I had to crop it down.
