Hi everyone, I would like to say first thing that I have changed my user name from NJ Jess to my full name. Even tho my full name is Jessica, you can still call me Jess. I thought it was about time for that change and I was getting tired of the old user name. ;)
Today we were suppose to have heavy rains and stormy weather and we didnt get anything but a few sprinkles. It was humid and cloudy all day and my backyard was very busy with bird activity. There were two Northern Flickers that gave me opportunity for some awesome shots & I caught this one preening, then the Red-bellied came down the tree with the baby to get some suet and a downy woodpecker stopped by. There were many other small birds as well and since we didnt get any rain I spent a lot of time in the yard today which not only resulted in some nice pictures but also a very sore arm from holding the lens. It gets better, then I take a few pictures & I am in pain all over again. Its the price you pay when using a big heavy lens, not as big as some others I've seen, but big enough for me lol.
