well, hello my little chickadee…

My husband was really sweet and bought me a zoom lens for Christmas.
I am still figuring out how to work it, but this was my best attempt so far.
Aren’t chickadees just the cutest bird?

I plan to spend the weekend catching up and relaxing,
kind of an oxymoron, but you know what I mean.

It’s cold…single digit cold.

I’ll have to be sure to put some extra food out for these little guys,
they will need to eat a lot to keep warm.

Just like me.

What are your plans for the weekend?

    Catching up & relaxing, yup, sounds about right. I am also taking some time for just breathing. Weird how hard that can be.

    Yes chickadees are amazing hearty birds! Love them and your photograph captures this one so well. She looks so playful!!

    What a cutie! When I was little, there was a pair of chickadees who lived in the attic of my next door neighbor’s house. My brother and I loved to watch them, and we named them Oodalally (the boy) and Day (the girl). =)
    Not sure what we’re doing this weekend… probably just taking it easy.

    Wow – you are making good use of that zoom – great photo.

  • Jillsy January 22, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    What a beautiful shot and how you processed it! Love it! Cleaning and going to friends for dinner and a movie tonight (they have a new wide screen that has an awesome picture!)

    Oh yes. They are my favorites. I cannot seem to lure any to my feeder though. I used to see tons of them out in the country but there don’t seem to be any here in the city. I love listening to their sweet calls.

    Beautiful shot, Pa and I are being lazy this weekend, too cold to do anything else 🙂

  • Carola January 22, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    Beautiful shot, Kelly! I have the feeling you will handle that zoom perfectly in no time at all. Enjoy the relaxing weekend.

    This is just beautiful! I am really just trying to keep warm this weekend! It is so unbearably cold here right now.
    Hope your weekend was a good one!

    What a great shot, have fun with your new lens. I just braved the cold and put more food out for the birds, I love watching them through our sun room window.

  • deb January 24, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    oh, I am completely smitten by chickadees,
    and with this photo
