I keep telling my husband that I am going to borrow his pop-up blind! These are wonderful shots.

Happy New Year Leedra and my your new blind become much worn in the new year.

Nice shots of the goldfinches, they look so drab in winter compared to their bright summer colors.

Leedra,
Those are wonderful shots of the Goldfinch! I know you will get such joy from using your new blind! I've got to have one of those;-)

Eve said...

I think that blind is working just fine!! You have fun with it Leedra, just think of all the great shots your going to get!

George said...

I expect many more great shots from your blind in this new year. It obviously works just fine!

Diane said...

HOW FUN IS THAT! ! ! I've imagined being hidden in some way so I could take better photos - what a great idea! May you have MANY happy hours and fabulous shots in 2009 ;)

Congrats on the new blind, Leedra! It is working great for you right from the get-go! I have a pop-up blind that I use around the house and a "drape" blind that I can carry around with me to use in the field.

Are you tired of that blind yet, Leedra??? I'll be glad to take it off of your hands!!!! ha ha...

I went outside to try to get some bird pictures today and they all went up into the trees and stayed there 'til I went back inside. Darn!!!
Happy 2009.
Hugs,
Betsy
