Little Carolina Wren, so glad you visit my garden

I never profess to be a great photographer, in fact I am one of those point and shoot people. I take a lot of fuzzy shots and I still put them on here because I figure it's better than the alternative, which is zero. My little Wren friend was taken through glass and the direction of the sun was not in my favor. Consequently, these photos are a little bit hazy. I could say I actually intended to go for that soft look but I can't tell lies. My eyes crinkle up and so does my nose, so if I ever tried to tell my parents a fib - an itsy-bitsy white lie - they could always tell. Funny, I used to tease my son because he did exactly the same thing when he was growing up. I guess there is something to be said for that gene pool?

She seeks him here.....

She seeks him there.....

But thankfully, that blessed hawk is not to be seen anywhere.

  1. What charming pictures of this dear little Wren. Whether you planned it or not, the soft focus is a wonderful touch.
    I'm so glad he visited your garden too :)

  2. I think it is wise of the wren to keep an eye out for that hawk!

  3. Very nice photos of the Wren, Denise. And your previous post about the hawks was interesting, also. I have never seen either bird in any of my trips abroad or here in Hawaii.

  9. I think you take marvelous pictures !
    Yes, I thought you'd added the soft focus, but maybe your camera lens is a little fogged due to being in a cool house, and then grabbed to run outside :)
    Little Carolina Wrens are some of the sweetest birds, just little busy bodies ;)

  12. Your last 2 days of birds are really nice. I'm glad you kept watching for them. And I prefer to look at the fuzzy photos as artistically softened. :D

  17. I love the soft hazy look. Perfect for this cute little guy. Even with your 'true confession' these are still beautiful shots!

  18. Pretty little bird - I'm thankful the hawk was nowhere to be seen too, Denise. I think your shot is lovely, however you came by it. And, your photography is far superior to mine. A x

  21. I like your wren photographs. They are excellent in the amount of detail they have. And while they might not be the same as what you could take, through the windows, with a DSLR -- a Canon or Nikon -- they are what you took. And that says it all.

    I must confess that I like the tonal quality of the hawk in your previous post. I thought I was following you and should have seen that when it was posted, but didn't for some reason. Nice shot.

  22. Veeery nice! But tell me, how did you achieve that soft, fuzzy quality :)

  23. I like the muted effect looks like you did on purpose

  24. I'm glad you posted them. The fuzzyness just adds to their beauty:-) I have a lot of trouble with the glass on our sliding doors...it gets moisture in it and really messes up the photos. Wren's are so nice to see anytime.
