I was extremely fortunate this year to have around a dozen of these in my yard for five days. I haven't seen a single one today so I guess they have moved on. Keep an eye out Flew, they may be headed your way!

Andy these shots are so perfect that they almost look like stuff birds you placed on a branch! Great job! What camera, flash and lens did you use? Your EXIF data was removed.

Thanks, Anthony

Thank you very much Anthony! That's nice to hear. I work at it and miss a lot of shots but every now and then it all comes together. I use a 300/4 lens with 1.4 converter and shoot from a blind or natural camouflage such as a bush or a tree with low branches. If you don't make any sudden or animated movements the birds will usually accept your presence after a while. I also use a feeder setup where I can control as many variables as possible such as background etc. My shooting time is very limited so I have to maximize my chances for success. Mostly in the afternoons somewhere in my neighborhood is where I do most of my springtime photography. My neighbors think I'm nuts!

Excellent shots Andy. I've seen a handful of males and females, but not as many as last year. I hope that they are headed this way. :smile:

I hope they head your way too Frank. Sounds like you need a little stress relief.
