Saw this bird the other day and took a picture (with my fancy-dancy new camera).

It’s a Brown Thrasher and you don’t usually see them out in the open like this. I had a nest of them in my shrubs a couple of years ago. We scared the crap out of each other when I was trimming the hedges one day. I left the nest alone for the summer and assume that they recovered from their shock (as did I), raised their little ones and got on with their lives.

I wonder if this guy is one of their descendants?

Anyway, I just thought it was kind of neat because you really don’t see them around here all that often.

Here’s a couple more pix I took of the dogs the other day. I thought they were kind of neat, but I obviously need to play with the f-stops to get the depth of field down when doing closeups like this.

  1. Getting the entire face in focus isn’t really very important. However, what is essential any time you are photographing any face is that you have the eyes in focus.
