One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2015—Enthusiastic Bathing

Shortly after I photographed the hermit thrush, the bushtits descended to the fountain for an enthusiastic bath. My camera was set to Aperture priority and I didn’t think to raise the ISO from 200 to a higher setting to produce a higher shutter speed to stop the action. But, in the end, I like the blurred result which really shows their enthusiasm for the fountain. And, the severe rainstorm we had just before I left for Texas dislodged whatever was blocking the bubble and now it’s back to normal so the birds seem really happy to splash in it.
