I stopped by the office of my insurance agent today to thank Katherine for saving us some money by suggesting that we request a re-rate. This suggestion came to me out of the blue and ended up saving us money. Talk about good customer service! As I was leaving she told me to look at the cottoneaster bush across the parking lot. She knows I have a thing for birds. The hedge was swarmed with robins. OK, robins aren’t exactly the most exotic bird but I did not have any shots of merit in my catalog so I decided to see about filling that void. Of course, the birds are feasting on red berries right now and are probably a bit tipsy from the vast quantity they ingest. The light was too bright I think… can you ever please me? Anyway, I set up in the parking lot and spent about 45 minutes watching and shooting these birds. Trying to catch them with a berry in the mouth was harder than it might look. Fun to try though.
