Butt shot and Hairy.....

Discussion in 'Birds' started by kramp, Aug 20, 2005.

  1. 1/60 f4 wide open, heavy overcast, 1/32 manual fill flash, never know what I am going to get, lots of blurred pictures but some can be interesting.

    Chestnut Backed Chickadee, well there are two butt feathers in focus...
    Hairy Woodpecker. One with motion, one with out.

    Mrs. Squirrel, she is always fighting with the woodpeckers, we had a pair of flickers, a pair of Hairy's and a Downy at the feeder this morning.
    The feeder is big chunk of cedar I found on the beach that I drill 3/4" holes about four inches long and fill with a peanut butter mixture of nuts and seeds.

    Comments, suggestions and crituque welcome.

  2. OK Martin the first image is butt ugly; however, the others are cute as can be. Looking at image two I found my head bobbing up and down to try and catch the focus. Ahhhhh #3 relieved the tension in my neck. And then of course who can resist a squirrel image. Well done.

    Nice shots, Martin! Really like the squirrel. Image 2 can make you dizzy, but it sure does capture their natural actions.

  8. Nice job Martin! Whenever I look at photos posted at this great forum I always try to guess which Nikon camera was used and your shots fooled me...I guessed D2x! Gotta love that D70 :wink:

  9. great series Martin!! Cool first shot, and I like squirrels!!
  10. I like the woodpeckers, Martin. Lots of action in the 1st woodpecker shot. Squirrel is nice too.
  11. Thanks all for the comments, we had five Downy's and a Hairy at the feeder at the same time today, plus a Flicker in the front yard, I guess I should have been out there taking pictures. :)
