Canon EOS and Some Native Plants

The Birdfreak Team’s new camera came in today and I am already pleased. It’s a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. I only had time to shoot for a half hour or so before it was too dark to bother, but it is easy to use and focuses so much better than my old camera.

The first photo was Arizona who was overly curious (as he always is).

Then it was outside for some views of our native plants.

Royal Catchfly is a fairly rare plant and we planted over a dozen last year.

We’re looking forward for this to flower so it will be full of hummingbirds.

We like to refer to these and the large quantities of hosta as “Thrush Bait”.

Moon over the CNP
The moon is telling me to get inside and do some research. Hopefully tomorrow the White-throated Sparrows will be ready for their photo shoot. And I’ll be posting pictures of some more of our natives.
