Garden Tuesday - Telephoto Lens Please

So far away
Okay, who wants to chip and buy me a telephoto lens? Any takers?

Help me please
Because this is what I was trying to take a picture of. Donations welcome.

Hi Pam! This made me lol! We actually have feeders in our yard to attract the Cardinals. They are something, for sure. I have quite a few terrible/fuzzy shots of them...through our sliding glass door because I can never get close enough.

Christmas is right around the corner!
Such beautiful birds! Supposedly, there are cardinals around here, but I've never seen one. Lucky you!!!

lol, Pam you crack me up! I think you did a FINE job, telephoto lens or not.

I love to see Cardinals; there are none where I live and I've never seen one in person. Thank you for sharing this one with me. :)

His cousin lives in a juniper in my yard. Their family has been there for generations - 20 years of which I'm aware. Send excess donations my way, so we can help these cousins exchange pictures.

We have had a huge amount of northern cardinals this year. Some seem to be living in my front bushes. I just love them.

Oooh, nice rock! Okay, just kidding! I love cardinals. We don't have any at all, not ONE, where I live. They were my late sister's favorite bird, and they always bring a smile to my face reminding me of her! Thanks for making my day!

Cardinals are so bright and cheery. I was thinking the same thing about how good a telephoto lens would be a couple weeks ago when I was out on my porch and I saw a beautiful hare in my back yard. Huge, it really was. And I tried to take a picture, but to anyone else looking at it, you'd think I was capturing the lovely oak tree in the background. Sigh. Its so hard to get close enough to the animals around us to capture those moments.

Well, you need a new len, but the garden is really pretty!

I don't have a telephoto lens but my neighborhood cardinals are faaaast. I can't usually get my camera out and on before they have flown away. Dang cardinals.

My grandmother gave me and my sister ceramics birds when we were kids. Mine was a Blue Jay and my sister had a Cardinal. They are so beautiful, I wish we had them here!

Eve said...

Wow pretty! If only I could see it better! ;)

Start a charity. Thats what I did when I wanted to make a trip home to show off my newborn son. Sent e-mails to all friends and family for any donations and managed to get half the funds we needed.

Of course there was the incentive of getting to meet my Son, but still. Might work!

It definitely took me a few takes to see that bird! Beautiful picture nonetheless.
