Day seven has definitely been the most difficult day to photograph the chicks. I slipped off a small step ladder and landed in a pile of weeds. The chicks are now on to me. When I walk by the window without a camera in hand, they are bright eyed and bushy tailed, but by the time I grab the camera and head outdoors, they are snug as bugs. They are definitely acting like toddlers.
I managed to trick them and grab this shot. They are teasing me big time!!!
