Default Wind: 'my feathers just wont stay put"

Well, the mighty storm came barreling in to New England overnight. Luckily, for us, it's been mostly a rain event. But, boy is it windy now...and, it's also snowing again. Haven't seen much in the way of birds today.
However, this one lonely Finch, came by and as I was taking a few shots of him, a gust of wind almost knocked him off the branch. He was okay, but his body feathers wouldn't go back in place.

E-30, 50-200mm ED 2.8 lens,393 manfrotto gimbal bracket on 3031 tripod.

Is that what you call "getting your feathers ruffled?" Were it not for the ruffled feathers, it might be a great Audubon shot. Nice job.

Beautiful...the image couldnt be any sharper.

I also live on Cape Cod and this storm was a real dud. Shoveling a few inches of slush yesterday was no fun. If we are going to get snow, let's do it right.

Hi,

Glad to see that I'm not the only one who is from the Cape.
What really makes storms such as this so frustrating is that the temps plummet after the storm leaves. I don't know about you, but my driveways looks like the frozen tundra right now. Since the garage is on the North side of the house, that ice on the driveway will stay there until April.

I got the driveway shoveled before the freeze, but the deck looks like a skating rink. stay safe and warm.
