Feeding Season started!

Snøen i år kom relativt tidlig og ganske brått på de fleste, men hvordan dette slår ut for våre små fjærkledte venner er jeg mer usikker på.  Imidlertid tok det bare noen få timer før det virket som det var allment kjent at ‘restauranten’ var åpen?

The snow came rather early  and very fast this year for most of us, but how it turned out for our small feathered friends I would not know. However, it seemed to take only a few hours before everyone in the neighborhood seemes to have received the news that the ‘restaurant’ had opened?
Blåmeisen var den første gjesten og til tross for at det snødde ganske tett på
morgenen! Imidlertid fikk jeg litt uventede problemer med mitt nye telefon-kamera fordi motivet i utgangspunktet ser ut til å være statisk, men når noe så skjer, så skjer det i et avsindig tempo og jeg rekker knapt å strekke fingren mot utløseren før gjesten har flyttet seg til et annet sted i busken.
Jeg har nesten glemt at på et vanlig kamera så kan man la fingren hvile mot utløserknappen og dermed lettere fange slike raske bevegelser. Men så var det disse ‘vekt-fordelene’ da . . .

The Blue tit was first in line, even if it was snowing heavily this morning. But suddenly I encountered an unexpected problem with my new phone camera:
As the motif in the beginning seems to be rather static, but when something the happens, everything moves in a franatic speed and when I stretch my finger for the
screen button, the object has long ago shifted position inside the shrub!
I had nearly forgotten my old primary camera that allow me to rest my finger tip on the camera trigger to catch such fast moving objects, but then there is the weight advantages in the phone . . .

I neste øyeblikk stakk en pilfink innom!
In the nex moment an Eurasian sparrow stopped by
Men han ble ikke sittende lenge på samme kvist . . .!
But he didn’t remain for long on the same twig . . .
Likevel foregår mye inne i selve busken . . .
Still – there is much going on inside the scrub itself –
Ikke helt i fokus denne gang –
Not quite in focus this time –
Endelig noen som oppfatter hva som skjer her. Sitt stille et sekund nå!

At last! Somebody have understood what’s going on here. Please remain quiet for a second now!
Dette blir bra. Bare se inn i kamera-linsen! Sånn!  Det var vel ikke så vanskelig, var det?
This will be OK. Just look into that camera lense! Done! That wasn’t so hard, was it?

    Pretty birds! 🙂

    • Seenorway says:

      They are indeed, Irina, and good company at the breakfast table!
      How are you these days?

      • irinadim says:

        Not the greatest. My husband has been in hospital since November 1. I visit him every day. He had a second toe of his left foot amputated. Recovery is slow and he is very tired and drowsy, probably from pain relief medication. I’m just hoping and praying he gets better.

        • Seenorway says:

          Sorry to hear about your husband. I guess we are all getting older by the months, but he surely didn’t need this? I hope it won’t affect his ballance once he gets out of the hospital?! But please keep an eye one those opiates!
          They may be dangerous in the long run!
          But then it seems you have had a lot of serious bushfires this year? We have seen some horrid pictures from NSW and the Sydney area? I hope your house is still OK?
          Up here the most pressing problem is continuous rain for the 3rd week on end. Not the hard rain, but drizzle!
          It seems to go on and on for eternity! Our early snow has all gone!

  2. Sweet little birdies! Does your cat sit in the window and watch them?

  3. utesmile says:

    Rather a lot of snow there. Lovely to see the birds coming you feed!

    • Seenorway says:

      No surprise, really, as I have been feeding for years, but earlier we had a large feeding house, so to speak, but it created a lot of work in the spring with layers of seeds that had to be removed. Now we are only hanging seed and nut cannisters in the shrub.

    Flott serie 🙂

    How pretty! Such cute little birds with their beautiful markings. Your photos are stunning showing crisp details.

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, Eugenia, but truth is I wasn’t all that happy with these ones.
      When the scene appears static, that’s what the camera will work with, and suddenly everything comes alive with movements at lightening speeds. It is easy to go wrong, and perhaps I should have used my regular M-1 for this job. But – done is done!

      • -Eugenia says:

        Well, I’ve said this before, you have a real keen eye and will see every flaw. Some look at a photo in its entirety and not notice every detail. I don’t have a keen eye like you do because I’m not a photographer but I do pay attention to detail.

        • Seenorway says:

          You may have a good point there. Especially because it is ‘my picture’, and my responsibility, that it is as perfect as possible before I share it with the world! 🙂
          Kind of ‘professional pride’, I guess?! 🙂

  6. Får de några solrosfrön av dig?
    Fina bilder.
