Sometimes one can't get outdoors but still want to take pictures of animals and birds.
 
For instance, sometimes I can't move too well so I'm confined to a chair by the window. I have my camera near me on a table, bird feeders about 10 feet from the window, and a stump set up 3 feet from the window. Sometimes I will have the camera on a tripod, with a remote cord, set up near the window, prefocused. When a bird lands on the stump and I know it is in the prefocused spot, I start taking  Diane Krouse pictures with the remote cord. Having a camera take can take 5 frames helps, because sometimes one can get an unexpected good shot or get one out of 5 good shots. It is not often that I can get 5 good shots in a row because the bird does move around and end up with a shot with no bird in it, if he is so quick and flies off before the shot is fired.
 
 
I don't think one has to be outdoors to get outdoor shots.

Red-Winged Blackbird At Fort Hill On Cape Cod

You can always hear the distinct “Cu-ca-ree” call of the Red-Winged Blackbird as you hike around Fort Hill. They are everywhere and so pretty. This guy was high in the Eastern Cedar tree along Nauset Marsh just singing away. Love his coloring… so bright and vibrant!

Pretty Purple Ground Ivy Along The Trails At Fort Hill On Cape Cod

Ground Ivy is part of the mint family and grows to about 6″ tall with 3/4″ blue-violet flowers which are tubular. They grow from April to June and you can see them all along the trails at Fort Hill in Eastham.

Belted Kingfisher At Goose Pond At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod

I love the cackling sound of the Kingfisher as he flies about. This Kingfisher landed high in the tree by Goose Pond looking for lunch below. I loved how he looks like a silhouette high in the tree. Love those feathers! What do you think?
