The Birds

I've never seen the movie "The Birds." I hear it's scary. I don't do scary. One time in college this guy (who shall remain nameless and faceless) tried to make me watch a scary movie. About 12 minutes in I made him change it because I'd built up the scary-ness so much in my mind, that I started to feel sick. Yes, I began to feel nauseated (nauseous?) while watching a scary movie with a boy after only twelve minutes. No, I didn't quite grasp the whole "you're supposed to cuddle when you're scared" thing. Also, I didn't want to cuddle with him. His pheromones were not appealing to me.

Yes, I just said that.

Pheromones are reason #57 that I'm still single, single, single.

Changing the topic: I always edit my pictures. I don't think I've put anything up on here that hasn't been cropped, straightened, texturized, darkened, lightened, increased contrast, etc. I guess I haven't been very clear on this because within the last month I've been asked about this a couple of times.  I use Photoshop Elements for my editing if you were wondering, which you probably weren't, so now I'm just going to go back to writing the rest of this post where the point is:
I EDIT EVERYTHING.

Except today, today you're going to see some straight out of the camera, through the window screen pictures of sweet birds on the grass.

These pictures are au naturel. Which I guess could be scary, but I think you can bear with me since you've seen plenty of my blurry, fuzzy cooking pictures and you're obviously still around. I think. Hello?  Helloooo? Heeeeelllloooooo? Are you around?

Here I go, delving into the scary world of un-edited pictures. I used my Nikon D50 with my Nikon 70-300mm lens, I'm still getting used to the lens, but I think I like it!

These last two are my favorites...I love the light in both of them, the way the setting sun catches the seed pods and almost makes them glow. *sigh* One of the great things about sunshine.

There you go, those are "the birds" out the window.
