A young brown thrasher (Georgia’s state bird) doing his/her best of one of the few snowy days in Georgia. I was outside testing out my new Canon 70D when I heard this little guy moving around in a tree behind me. I’ve never really noticed how yellow their eyes are until I got this photo.
I have no idea why, but for some time now, there have been so many birds gathering around our neighborhood, it’s somewhat surreal. When outside, the sound of their chirping is almost deafening. When they fly (simultaneously), it’s almost like something out of a horror movie. Tonight, while out walking my dog with Oscar (you can see the very low-light picture I took of him on his scooter in the “People” gallery), I decided to try to get a few pictures of the birds. Because it was an overcast evening, and there wasn’t much in the way of color, I decided to experiment with some black & white adjustments. I really like the results. Please feel free to comment — I’m always looking to improve.
It snowed in Atlanta last week and shut the entire city down. I tried to take advantage of the snow to get a few black and white photographs. This guy sits on a post in my back yard and guards our chickens. I thought he would make a good subject in the snow.
