    A few Spring denizens I saw while out walking my dog. I saw the little Downy Woodpecker fly into our tree, and I stood right out in the open about 15 feet away, waiting for it to make its way to the feeder. The Chickadee joined very soon thereafter. All the birds pretty much ignored me as I quietly worked on getting the best pics I could. My dog patiently waited without whining or barking. OM-D E-M5 + ZD 50-200 ED.

    A couple more from today. I managed to get within a few feet of the feeders without spooking the little Downy.

    Would love to see and get shots of the Woddies Tony. All fine shots and good to see warmer weather coming your way.

    All the best Tony.

    Thanks Danny. Haven't seen a post from you in a while (over on Talkemount, if memory serves). Hope all is well.
    In the western part of WV. Our grass stays green all year, although it will look healthier once growing season commences.

    Tony
