Yesterday afternoon the tree tops around here were filled with the locals. Snow on the ground from the last storm, more in the air, and what was being advertised as a winter storm adventure just about here. I couldn’t count the small Junco’s on the ground stocking up on food.
The storm did hit, but more like a typical New England blizzard, not the history making monster we were told. No complaints here though. None!
I tried to keep all my shots in the tree tops. I’m learning a new ‘super telephoto’ lens, and using only the back button focus method with it. This means I missed most of the opportunities for good shots. At one point I completely forgot to focus correctly and was sure I had broken something!
The little ‘fast movers’ did stay around long enough for a few long distance pictures though.
They were back today, but there was a storm after all so most of the day was digging out. With luck the wind will stop tonight and I can get out and about tomorrow.
