YAY! We finally got a few inches of snow. We never got this much last year, so I'm pretty excited to see it in all its beauty. One of the things I love about snow is the way the light reflects off it and throwing off some great light for photography. Sadly though, the one thing I dislike about it is that the owner of my community is not on top of getting our neighborhood cleaned up. So, when it snows I am pretty much snowed in for the day. However, I won't let that get me down because I look at it as an opportunity to be snowed in and photograph my feeder birds.

Just after it stopped snowing, I set up camp on my porch (using it as a blind) to photograph the birds. I usually use my 100-400mm lens, but lately it hasn't been functioning properly and today it didn't want to function at all. So, I wound up setting up my 500mm on the tripod. It sure was overkill for what I was trying to do and mostly all I was able to get were beautiful headshots.

I didn't get as much of a variety of birds as I was hoping, but I did get a few. Naturally, I got my beautiful bluejays. They always come through and never disappoint. As you can see here, my beautiful little bird posed so nicely with a peanut in his beak!
