Anyone like birds?

posted in Photography on Aug 13, 2014 Big Bird Seed

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to spend some time at a fancypants cabin in Missouri, situated right on the *garbled-voice-because-I-don’t-know-the-name* River. Much of the weekend was spent kayaking and fly fishing, so not many photos were taken. But I did shoot a few of some of the freeloading, forest birds who stopped by!

Mechanically, I don’t these photos are really that great. My zoom lens is super dark to begin with, so finding a good balance among ISO and focal length can be tough when the resulting image ends up pretty dark anyway. I also have a tough time grabbing sharp images with it because I generally end up forfeiting shudder speed for brightness, and while I like to think I am stone still, the reality tells a different tale. Such is life.

These images can also be viewed on Flickr.
