Red-Winged blackbirds

  1. It's rainy and grey in Montreal almost every day the last 2 weeks. A little sunbreak late sunday afternoon and go shooting I did. Here're some red-winged blackbird shots with Sigma 100-300mm/4

    It's a pity that I don't see the little branch intruding in the upper bird's face. It's too late afterward.

    Thanks for viewing.

    Gosh, they are pretty birds aren't they. The little branch isn't so bad. Still a very nice shot. How about I send some warm southern sunshine up your direction? :D
     
  3. Thanks, Leigh. That's what my little girl keeps asking me for almost a week now: I wanna go to Florida this summer, Daddy. Warm water and sunshine are fun. ... But Daddy has spent a lot on Nikon gear this year and Mommy looks at Daddy with a very bad eye. :) :)

    Very nice shots Dao. I told you that the birdie thing could get habit forming.... :lol:

  5. nice captures Dao, well exposed on this tough to shoot black bird.
     
  6. I have ┬źdiscovered┬╗ while photographing black butterflies that D100 spot metering with -0,7 to -1,3 EV does a good exposure job with those kind of black subjects.
     
  7. Nice shots Dao, the last one looks a little grumpy at you for bugging him.
     
  8. Good shootin' Dao. The last one is great..........looking right at you!!! :D :D :D
     
  9. Very nicely done Dao...they are pretty birds but I find them irritating :D, they keep following me hopping from tree to tree screaming, while I am trying stealthily to stalk herons :roll:

    Regards,

  10. Frank, you're right about habit forming. I take more and more pleasure to shoot birds. :!:

    Nice shots! And don't worry -- in a month or two those of us in the south will be wanting to send you all our hot weather in exchange for some cool days!
