They're still growing...
I didn't do my usual Weekly Chick Pic this past weekend, as there was a bunch of other stuff that needed my attention. And, I'm sure pics of baby chicks growing aren't all that interesting to most people. They are to me, because I handle them every day and they are almost like pets.
But also, birds are just plain difficult to photograph. They move around a lot. They often look away from the camera or flap their wings or run or otherwise make sudden movements that ruin a potentially good photograph.
Thank goodness for digital cameras, I couldn't afford the wasted film trying to photograph birds. I once read that Lucille Ball would not allow any pictures of birds in her house, because she loved birds and felt that pictures could never do them justice. I tend to agree, in the sense that much of what makes birds beautiful to look at is their movements.
I got a new video camera about a month ago, the ZR800 which I had talked about in an earlier post. I was actually hoping to do a short video of the chickies for the Farm Report, but other priorities took over. Maybe next week.
