Gorgeous House Finch

Yesterday I had a great time photographing birds. For those of you that regularly follow my photoblog you know that only a few of birds used the new bird feeder after I put it up. One was an Acorn Woodpecker and the other was this gorgeous male House Finch. The House Finch stayed in one spot and modeled for me for a couple of minutes. Wow, they hardly ever do that! It was really hard to decide which image to use for today's blog. So here it is. Enjoy and God bless, chris This image was created with a Canon 7D and a Tamron 150-600 lens at 600mm. Camera settings used were AV mode, ISO 800, F 8.0 at 1/800th of a sec. The camera was supported with a Manfrotto 055 XPROB tripod with a Bogen 3055 ballhead.
