Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater

We have deer preying on our pumpkins, smashing and noshing away as I type. That would be fun to catch. I've been in awe of the many verity of Hawks and Owls living all around us FOREVER! They would be fun the catch on film too! Mr. Duck Tape (Cannon elph) and I had a rough day today... So I give you a gift from my Cannon Rebel XT archives.

Cannon Rebel XT
f 5.6
no flash
ISO 400

As you can see I did not take this photo today... These four little guys would be toast or birdie popsicles if they were hanging around in these parts of the woods.
I hope they are well on their way to somewhere warm. This was taken with the camera I'm missing so very, very much.
I can't wait for spring already. There are snow flurries and I'm still excited for the pristine snows and frosted winter wonderland. But I can't help wanting spring. I love our changes of season. We are really spoiled with the wonder of change.
Now, I hope I have talked in circles enough to have mixed you all up enough to forgive me for not playing by the exact rules.

Warm Wishes !


  1. You're forgiven. I LOVE me some babies. Babies of all kinds. Great job getting this photo, not an easy task at all.
    You keep rising up to the occassion... a true trooper.

  2. Great shot Jay'me! What kind of birdies are they?

  3. Hey Scott,
    Those are the type of birds Eagles eat. Fat little Robins. Did I ever show you the albino robin I got pictures of last summer? I'll have to send those to you - REALLY cool.

  4. Thanks for the answer, Jay'me. No, I haven't seen those and Yes, I would be very interested in seeing them. You can send the pics to rscottwitt@yahoo.com.

  5. Oh good now I have your email address Scott :). The little robins are adorable! I would like to see your albino robin, never seen one of those before. My eagle is checking out your babies, deciding when to make a meal of them.

    Nice job getting up close and personal with them. Did mama come and attack you? Everytime I've tried to get close to babies I get chased off. Great, great shot!

  6. I'm not going to lie, I'm really happy you didn't get the momma regurgitating her lunch for the babies. Thanks for that. Nice capture though, especially in light of your camera woes. And I hear ya on the spring thing. I'm finding I'm stumped more and more when it comes to photography and it's because I don't want to go out in this freaking cold!
