The only shots taken from the blind were the hairy woodpeckers and the juncos this time, if I recall correctly. The sparrows, warblers, bluebirds, blackbird, robins...I was just meandering nonchalantly to get those shots. Most are cropped pretty close, but I could get within 40 or 50 feet that way. Go slow, take some pics, take a step forward, take some pics, take a step forward... madame hazel is in her glory because I let her take as many pics as she wants on the way to the birds in case the next step flushes them. The soaring birds were a tad farther away, of course. Those are cropped pretty tightly.

I'll probably start using the blind again when the bluebirds start feeding babies (should be in a couple of weeks considering the behavior I saw a few days ago), and when the indigo buntings and rose-breasted grosbeaks return
