It is another rainy day here today and will be through Friday as a well . Last night was very windy and rainy to and now lots of tree bits all over the lawn and I will have to get out and collect them later Camp fire goodies they are lol !
I usually have my ISO set at 200 for day time shots but it has taken me some time to figure out that when taking rainy cloudy overcast day photos to have my cameras ISO on 800 as that lets more light in with out over exposing each shot . I use that setting for night shots as well , so that I have been doing for these photos on this rainy cloudy day . Photography is a for ever learning curve that's for sure and a lot of trial and error to lol ! as well as self teaching with the odd tutorial to follow and try but all fun to do !
This little guy always takes cover from the rains under our porch and chirps his heart out with the sound of the rain falling , such a cutie .
It is nice to have Geraniums in bloom inside with all these cloudy April showers out there !
The Robins love these rainy days as the rains falling bring the worms to the grounds surface and they can gorge and feast on their favorite food , worms !.
I like how the cloudy day light captures some colours of things and how interesting some things can be on a rainy gloomy day with rain drops all over them !
Lots of spring growth here and grass is getting very green and long now to will have to get my old tractor Betsy out soon and do some cutting .
Mr Cardinal was helping the Misses collect nesting material .
And I cant rave enough at how wonderful this green hopper feeder is for my smaller birdies like all the Finch breeds , Cardinals , Chickadees, Sparrows , Nuthatch , Woodpeckers , Grosbeaks and more and saves on seed and really stops the bullies like black birds , Jays and Squirrels from being on it . I will say again for the backyard birders who love to feed the birds and keep the bullies off of the feeder , save money on seed and keeps the seed dry, this feeder is well worth it !
So as the saying goes April showers bring May flowers is well worth all the rain and I cant wait till the flowers , trees and bushes bloom and the return of our Oriels and hummers .
Until next time .
