As promised, here’s another photo taken in front of our house. Our Japanese Maple tree’s leaves are turning beautiful colors and falling from the tree. Some of them are caught by the birdhouse with its rusting metal roof that is hanging from a branch of the tree. The leaves on the birdhouse were as I found them, having fallen on the roof and onto the twigs that serve as a perch for the small Finches that nest in this area.
The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, EF17-40mm f/4L lens, 1/30 sec at f/4, ISO 100, camera mounted on a Vanguard tripod with a Manfrotto head.
