I’ve been thinking about doing some home repairs and came across the vlier brand. All of their products look to be made of excellent quality. I’m not exactly sure what we would need to buy for them because my husband is the house fixer upper. But I’m sure he’ll have no problem finding exactly what he needs to fix our house right up.

little birdies

Jake found these little guys out in the shed behind the house. I think there’s 2 or 3 of them. I didn’t handle them at all because I want the mama bird to continue to take care of them. I used my zoom lens to get in close so I could get a good shot. I know they probably won’t be in the nest much longer because they already have feathers and were standing up :).

I think this is a baby Wren, but not too sure...

camera doesn’t necessarily make the photographer

I am really glad that I opted to buy the D5100 rather than something more expensive.  I have made the decision to invest in lenses and filters over a more expensive camera body. I compared some of the shots of the more expensive camera to the ones taken with the D5100 and I really can’t tell much of a difference. Not enough to spend over $2000. At least not right now.  Photography also isn’t about having the most expensive camera. It’s about capturing the moment.  It also has a lot to do with technique and finding the right settings. That’s something I’ve really made myself practice on lately.  And I can tell it’s helped a lot.

I took this one a few days ago. I didn’t specifically set out to find this little guy and was actually looking for something else when I saw him fluttering around among the clover. I got a few shots, but this is one of my favorites.
