Red and Yellow

Someone should have told me not to go photographing birds yesterday morning.It was cold and the wind was blowing. The blind would shake in the wind and the birds would fly away. I sat in the blind for about three hours and I took eleven images and I photographed three species of birds. There were House Finches, Oak Titmice and White Breasted Nuthatches. One American Goldfinch came in but I wasn't able to capture any images of it. After coming home and editing the images there were only two that had merit. Here they are. Though the conditions weren't great it was better than any morning working in an office! God's love and blessings upon your weekend. Both images were created with a Canon 7D and a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM. AV mode, ISO 800 f 8.0 1/500th of a sec. Fill flash was provided by a Canon 550 EX flash at -2 stops.


  1. Those are lovely with the red against the yellow. Yes, way better than sitting in an office. :-)

  2. Thank you, Shelly. Looks like you had fun with the locomotives. You would really enjoy the Roots of Motive Power group and their steam ups. You and your husband might want to think about a steam trip of Roots and the Skunk Train along with the redwoods.,,
