Mike, great stuff. What kind of distance are you shooting from and are these crops? Also, are these all "natural" or have you set perches up around your feeders? One thing I want to do this year is to start shooting more "small" birds, trying not to figure out how :lol: .

Thanks!

Just excellent Mike. I am going to have to break out my flash for the small bird shots in the future. Are you using the Stofen diffuser, the little white card, or just straight on?

Good work,
For the close one s I use the diffuser but for some of the other natural cover I have setup I shoot without it kind of hit and miss

I have three feeders in the yard and have setup some natural perches for them to stop at in there way in and out. Most of these shots are from 10 to 30 feet at the most 45 feet there is some cropping maybe 25 percent or so, even with the cropping the 8x10s are flawless at least to my untrained eyes.
