Every year just as our apple tree is bursting into bloom the waxwings arrive. I'm never sure if they're sampling the nectar or actually eating the blossoms. We always have plenty of apples regardless so I won't begrudge them. They seem to have a soft pink hue on their breast and would be very pretty if not for the bandit like mask around their eyes.
I went out the other night after posting about my recycled glass feeder with the solar light inside and tried to get a picture as it was getting dark. The solar light works!
It took me 3 tries to figure out how to turn off the flash. I confess that I am very lazy about reading and learning to use all the features on my camera. I have a Canon Rebel Eos and I barely know the basics! There are just so many things to learn, aren't there? I really must.
One thing I learned in my reading about photography once was to take lots of pictures and you're bound to get one good one. This is how I got the next one of the apple blossoms. There were a few that were not so great. Digital is so fun!
