15 Minutes On The Porch


I warned you that I was shifting into "bird" mode...I was only able to sit on the front porch for about 15 minutes this afternoon but the birds rewarded me. Here's a Red winged Blackbird...they'll empty a feeder in a heartbeat!


A young male cardinal


A female Cardinal...this girl wasn't shy at all, she flirted with me for several minutes.


Adult male at the feeder


The Black Crested Titmouse was back...or maybe (probably) another one. This one did seem a little larger than the one from yesterday.


Lucky shot of the day...I was about to shoot the male cardinal in the background when this female flew right into the frame...it could be a little sharper but "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth."...right?

All these were with the Sony 70-200/2.8 with a 1.4x teleconverter.

Wow! Excellant job! Love that female cardinal caught in mid-flight, too sweet! So what happens when you get a whole hour?
