Don’t you think that wild birds are a true joy for the people who are interested in watching them?
Lisa, who goes by Ostdrossel online, recently found a wonderful way to snap these majestic animals in detail by fixing a bird feeder camera by herself. She had been thrilled to find a large community of birds in her backyard soon after the move that she made from Germany to rural Michigan in 2012. Thus, she has started capturing the beauty of her bird community.
“There was so much color and diversity, different from what I was used to in city life,” Lisa said. “I wanted to share them with my family in Germany and so I started feeding birds and taking photos.”
Anyhow, her hobby has been gradually transformed into her passion with the passage of time. So, she had set up a weatherproof box to take fantastic close-ups. The best 30 images are presented here in this article. Vote for your favourites!
