Band-tail on a Branch

This morning I was working on a backlog of images that need to be edited and processed. As I was working I heard the heavy flutter of wings out in the backyard and I knew it could be only one thing. Band-tailed Pigeons! I quickly walked around the corner and down the hall. I could hear them squabbling as I got closer to our back bedroom window. My camera was already set up on the window sill behind a masonite and camo fabric window blind. When I looked through the viewfinder of the camera I could see that the platform feeder was covered in pigeons.I had to wait for one of the newcomers to fly down onto the perch next to the feeder. I made quite a few images but this one was my favorite. God's tender blessings upon your day, chris Image created with a Canon 7D and Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens at 210mm. Camera settings used were AV mode, ISO 100, F 5.0 at 1/80th of a sec. #TeamCanon
