One of the ways I relax is to sit in a lawn chair near my backyard habitat. I love listening to the birds singing around me and feeling the warmth of the sun on me.
I recently moved my chair closer to my bird feeders and have been bringing my camera out with me. While this may have upset some of my regular habitat visitors, I am sure they will soon grow accustom to the new proximity of the large binocular-visioned potential predator. I simply sit very still and the more courageous birds demonstrate there is nothing to fear providing me with ample photo opportunities.
It’s raining today so I had a little time to process some of photos I’ve been taking. Hope you enjoy them!
