    I'm fortunate to have an outstanding birder and bird photographer for a friend. His yard (which is large) is set up to attract birds and boy do they come in. I was there this morning shooting and these are some of the images I got from his blind.

    I shoot from a blind and I am only about 20 feet away. I only spent about two hours getting these and have seen as many as 25 species of birds some mornings.
