There are two problems: I am shooting through a window, and getting sufficient depth of field is problematic with two birds.Interesting! Doesn't look like there is much motion blur. Did you apply any selective sharpening? Are they frequent visitors in your area?
Actually, there is lots of competition at the feeder. The grosbeak tries to bully smaller birds, but is himself bullied by the red-bellied woodpecker. The cardinal and the grosbeak have a "Mexican standoff", squawking at each other from different perches on the feeder.I guess they all know where the best food is and they're willing to share... :tongue:
Thanks, Bill.I like that first one, they are simpley refusing to look at one another!
Thanks, Pat.Very nice. Good color and detail. I like the 3rd and 4th ones best.
Thanks, Eric. Do you get crossbills in Kansas? They are very rare here.Terrific, Jim - I've been on the lookout for either of those with no success thus far. :smile:
Yes, Jim, but not frequently, and they are not often photographed by amateurs such as me.Thanks, Eric. Do you get crossbills in Kansas? They are very rare here.
I saw no crossbills today, so they may be gone. They left at about this time two years ago, which was the only previous time we have seen them. The Grosbeaks were still around today, however.
