A Walk

29 Jun

Sometimes when you’re tired, there’s nothing like a long walk in pasture to help recharge.  I took one of those walks yesterday.  Besides which, I wanted to play with back button focus on my camera.  I found a lot of birds willing to help me out.

Nothing like all that nature to put me in a good mood.

I do hope you’ll come back and join in as we start a new round of Friday’s Hunt.  The prompts for this week are at the top of my side bar.

    You have some beautiful bird pictures here! I have no idea what type of focus that is your camera has. Mine isn’t that fancy. Not that fast, either!

      It does take some speed to capture those birds.

    Because you blog mainly about goats I never realized you had so many bird species on the farm. It was wonderful to see the variety. No idea what ‘button’ you were trying but it wopor,Ed.

      I see these birds on a consistent basis throughout the summer. The bobolink has really become my buddy this summer.

    Look at all of those birds! Wow, I would be happy to take a walk and find just a couple of different birds around here.

      I know. I thought about linking up, but I just haven’t had time to get around and visit everyone. I miss my blogging friends, but this summer has been crazy.

    Hello, wonderful collection of birds. I love the redhead woodie. Great photos.

      They have a home right at the edge of the pasture, so I’m enjoying seeing them regularly.

    Bird 2 looks like a hawk, possibly red tailed

      Way too small for a hawk.
