Wishing all of my friends on the East Coast the best this weekend during the big snow. The photo above was taken during the last major storm in the D.C Area.

I laugh when I remember my first attempt at backyard bird photography. I would always train my camera on the feeders and be totally oblivious to what was going on in the trees above.

One can definitely get some good photos in and around feeders, but as time went on, I became frustrated as the feeder hardware took up most of the photos.

Then one snowy morning I looked up to see a woodpecker working its way up a pine tree. Read More
