Another Morning In The Blind

Today I was able to set up and photograph from a new blind.  Someone I work with enjoys bird photography, but has had hit and miss luck with it.  I let him borrow a blind today and we set it up in his backyard.

It was really cool, as there were all kinds of birds, but no sparrows.  We set up regular feed and some suet to attract the birds.

It is amazing how different habitat to work with can make a difference in your pictures.  As mentioned before, I have a small space and a lot of habitat surrounding the area to work in.  Most of my pictures will be more environmental photography of the birds.  He has more open area with a lot of feeders.  We are able to work with the background more and give the pictures a different feel.

As he experiments with setups and backgrounds it should be fun to see the images that will come from the property.  Hopefully you will see images from both settings on the blog over the next year.

Nature is fun to watch and be in, whether it is walking in the woods, sitting in a wetland, along a mountain stream or sitting in your own backyard in a photo blind.  Take some time yourself and enjoy the natural environment around you.
