So one day last week, I set up my camera on a tripod, backed a long way off, and clicked using a remote trigger. These are some of my results. Sorry Gail, you can't look because they are not up to your standards. ☺
Because I didn't know whereabouts on the feeder the birds were going to land, I shot the whole thing and cropped later — quite a lot. I may just pick a perch next time.
|One of my first photos. From the distance I couldn't tell that there was a bird behind until I uploaded the photo.|
|Just settling in for a good feed.|
|I decided to merge two photos together for balance since there were never two birds there at the same time.|
Oops. Almost forgot this one, taken sans tripod at a longer distance. It was one of the few appearances of the mature male.
