Few More Birds

Yesterday morning I went out to my photoblind in the Little Lake Valley and photographed birds. Not too many birds came in to the bird feeders. I'll probably have to switch to a meal worm feeder to get more action at this time of the year. As usual the local Lazuli Buntings taunted me by feeding all around me on the native oat grass seeds. Just out of camera range of course! Once the male came in close but he was perched on a very unphotographic two by four. When I got back home I edited my images there were two images that I really liked. One of an Oak Titmouse (one of my favorites) and a male House Finch. Not bad for a short morning in the blind. God's love and blessings upon the rest of your week, chris both images were photographed using a Canon EOS 7D camera with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens. AV mode, ISO 800, F 8.0, 1/2,000th of a sec and 1/640th of a sec. Fill flash was provided with a Canon 550 EX flash set to high speed synch at -2stop exposure. The camera was supported with a Manfrotto 055 XPROB tripod with a Bogen 3055 heavy duty ballhead.


  1. Great shots! Those Oak Titmice are great birds!

    1. I agree, Shelly, those Titmice are great little birds. Pretty feisty for being such a small little thing!
