Rainy Day Bird

We awoke to gray leaden skies this morning. I wanted to photograph birds but a bear tore apart my bird feeder so that kind of shot down that idea. Our view of the Little Lake Valley came and went with the rain showers all day. During a brief respite I made a new feeder and tried some bird photography for about an hour with only one successful image. It was of a Chestnut Backed Chickadee. It captures the light of the day pretty well with the dark forest behind it. These chipper little birds help brighten up any rainy day. God's love and blessings to all, chris The image of the bird was created with a Canon 7D and a Tamron 150-600mm lens at 375mm. They were supported by a Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod with a Bogen ballhead. Camera settings used were AV mode, ISO 1600, F 8.0 at 1/80th of a sec. #TeamCanon
