52 Fridays, Week 11: "Close-Up"

I missed joining in with our group last week, but life has been just a little bit crazy! But, I'm back this week and excited to be here! While I was trying to think of a "close-up" shot I wanted to do, the only thing that kept coming to mind was Spring and finding any little sign of it here in Seattle. I am sooooo tired of being cold! They say that Robins are the first sign of Spring and they were all over our yard today. So, I grabbed my camera, determined to chase one down! Well, I found out they don't really like that. So, next I tried pretending I was a statue, hoping they'd come right up to me! That didn't work so well either! (Smart little buggers!) Then I came around the corner and caught this little guy by surprise! I had about 2 seconds to snag the shot and then he was gone! Lucky me - I got it! His belly feathers look a little ruffled - he didn't take his eye off of me for one second! Then of course, I had to find ONE flower in our yard! That was it! ONE! Come on sunshine! I'm waiting! (P.S. Forecast calls for rain for the next 10 days straight! UGH!)





Make your way through our group by next visiting Shea Parker/Clinton Mississippi Child Photographer. Can't wait to see all the "close-up" shots!

Lisa Turner said...

I love the water droplets on those flowers! I would also like to know what lens you used on the bird.

Kelly said...

A couple of you asked what lens I used on the robin... I actually grabbed my old camera - the Nikon D40 with their inexpensive 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED zoom lens attached to it for this shot. That little camera and lens have taken good care of me! Then the flower is shot with the D90...... can you tell the difference?
