An Early Sign of Spring

One of the earliest signs of spring in the Little lake valley is when the Quince start blooming. Right now as you look across the valley there are little splashes of red here and there where the Quince are in peoples yards. This morning I headed out to the Burris Ranch and I created a set up using a Quince branch for a perch. The birds were delighted with it and so was I. This image was my favorites from the series a male House Finch. The image was made with a Canon 7D and a Tamron 150-600mm lens at 450mm. The camera was set to AV mode, ISO 400, F 6.3 at 1/3,200th of a sec. The camera was supported by a Manfrotto 190 PROB tripod with a Bogen 3055 Ballhead. Please enjoy this little bird. God bless, chris
