Finch & Woody

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Lou Buscher, Jun 17, 2007.

  1. Whenever I sit on my deck I always put the 500+1.4 on a tripod and just let it sit there. Sometimes something comes to my feeder that I like so today I saved these 3.

  2. 2 look at the way the tail is he just chased two doves off the feeder and it was quite a battle as wings were going. I just watched.

    Looks like you had some good entertainment Lou. Beautiful Red-bellied!

    Wow nice shots
    That wood pecker sure posed great for you.. Great shot
  7. Thanks Andy, I also took him at 1000 ISO as I always try for the fastest SS I can get with birds as it seems they are always on the move.
  8. Thanks Alex and it is almost a FF photo I did crop & clone out a piece of the feeder.
    SS was 1/400 @ F5.6
    ISO 1000
    EV was 0
    FL was 700MM (no digital factor counted) and I am about 20 to 25 feet from him.
  9. Thank you Phil and now you can do some playing with your new 800 as soon as you get a sunny day. You are going to love the close up look you can get with that lens at 25 feet.
  10. Thanks Gale, Well he made me wait for it as he was quite busy fighting off the doves who for some reason seem to plentyfull all of a sudden. He fights with his beak and the doves (like pigeons) fight with their wings. A whole lot of feathers floating down. I just watched from my soft chair. Ahhhh just the way wildlife photography should be.:biggrin:
