My Lovely Little Chickadee
Here along the edge of the Pacific Coast in Northern California we have the Chestnut Backed Chickadees. They are gregarious fun little birds. In winter they are probably the most common bird coming to my bird feeders. I just love'em. Last week I set out to photograph them taking off from the perch next to the feeder. This image was my favorite. God's love and blessings to all, chris Image created with a Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400 IS lens at 275mm on a Manfrotto 055 PROBX tripod with a Bogen 3055 ballhead. camera settings used. Manual mode, ISO 1600,F10.0 at 1/160th of a sec. Four canon 540EZ flashes were used at 1/64th power.

Thank you very much Judy Chandlee for stopping in today and commenting! Good old Canon flashes stop the action. Though I must say the timing took quite a few tries.ReplyDelete
