Weekend Snapshot: Number 65

I enjoyed having a long weekend. We had a pleasant Thanksgiving dinner but beyond that I mostly puttered around and had a pretty low key lazy weekend.The photographs in this post were all taken on Saturday. I am finding it easier to photograph birds in the trees and also around bushes and vines. Bare trees are the easiest place to photograph the birds but they are pretty far away. The vines and bushes still have some leaves for cover but not as much as they used to so I can get some closer shots of the birds feeding if I'm quiet.I guess that's it for my weekend snapshots. I hope everyone has a good week ahead. To find other participants please visit the home of Weekend Snapshot.

I am glad you had such a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.

I took shots yesterday of our bare trees and the wintry looking skies. But, I saved them for another time.

Thanks for these wonderful shots. A visit here is always such a pleasure!!

Always fun to have a low key weekend to rejuvenate one's self.

Like the picture of the last bird, he seems like he has something to tell you.
