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.

this is really pretty kelly .. I am making birds at my table .. have a great weekend!!

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.

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.

“Dee dee dee” in winter and “spring soon” in spring

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

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.

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