Walking past my bedroom window recently, I saw a Cardinal sitting outside in a nearby tree. I liked what I saw, what with the way the light was “working” with the bird and the tree leaves, and since I had may iPhone handy I tried to hold its camera lens close to the window glass. No good. I said to myself “Please don’t fly away bird” while I went to get my telephoto lens camera. Coming back to the window I was happy to see the bird still there, although it’s position had shifted a bit. I held the camera lens tight to the window glass, steadied it carefully and took the shot. I didn’t have time to check the camera’s monitor to see the result, before the redbird flew away. It was like it knew I’d reached my objective to capture the moment. I had. As you can see. One patient bird for sure.
