In much the same way as an artist paints a picture, or a photographer takes a photo....

The patterns make me think of leaded stained glass. It is a really interesting photo, suunto. I wonder how long those paddys have been in cultivation.

Here are two of our favorites. A dark-eyed junco and a chickadee (we aren't sure if it is a Carolina or a black capped because we are right on the line for the two species. It is hard to tell from the picture).

I should note that these were taken by my wife, who is a portrait photographer and was kind enough to sit outside with me in the snow and take these shots.

Juncos are a fun bird to watch. They hide seeds in under the bark of the trees. Little do they know the squirrels are but one step behind....

TimSaupe-
NICE chickadee photos. We get lots of chickadess in both summer and winter here.

Thanks for sharing the wonderful chickadee photos.

Tim, your wife's pix are wonderful! I believe your Chickadee is the Carolina bird. Comparison Here

Thanks for the compliment Sage - nice osprey shot - I had always thought it was a Carolina, but we are literally right on the line where the two species overlap, so . . .
