These were all taken in my backyard. Just put up a new suet feeders after I had a small black bear tear the last two down. Sat at our patio table and shot these with a D3,D800 & 300mm/f2.8.

Louie,

These are awesome, great set. I have had a couple come to my backyard from time to time but the lighting conditions and perhaps my skills have not allowed me to get the shot I have been looking for. I am still hoping.

Wonderful work! Great timing on that last one! Excellent control of the backgrounds, shutter speed and detail.

Thanks Luis, I appreciate your documents. With the rest of the shooting around here being quite slow right now, it's great that my backyard is having this much action.
Wow.. Great series. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks very much David.
Outstanding!
Appreciate your comment very much.
Superb set Louie, I wish I had got some better shots of these last time I was in Florida
