The Birds Are Back
I actually lost a bit of interest because there are so many mourning doves around here. I like mourning doves, but I hear and see them all the time. It really did catch my eye though when I saw them over there concentrating so hard on their meal.
The next reason I'm revisiting this is because even the robins were interested in what the mourning doves had. This robin in the foreground of my picture really wanted to get its share of the food, but I don't think the mourning doves would have put up with the interloper.
And my last reason for these photos is because I haven't taken many pictures since then. I'm having a bit of mechanical trouble with my camera, so I'm planning on getting a new one. My viewfinder keeps shutting off, so it has become pretty useless. I can still look through the eye piece, but I don't want to have to do that every time.
So that has lead me to begin doing some research on which new camera I want to get. I've looked through many of them and eliminated most. I want one that can do at least as much as my current camera, but I also want some improvements.
The good thing is that I've narrowed my search down to one I think I might want. Some cameras have certain better features than this one, but are lacking in others. I think I've found one that balances out the best features that I require. But I still have some research to do. I like to be very thorough.
When I finally decide and get my new camera I'll reveal which one I've chosen. Then maybe I'll be taking pictures a little more quickly again. Until then I'm struggling along, but I'll try to keep up. Okay, that's enough for today. I'll talk to you later.
