canon 70-200L f/4 IS. Just got it yesterday. So far I love it. I am sure it is even better on a day with some light. Donna

Nice shots!!! the idea of a post and branches for a perch is excellent and it really works well!! Much improvement in these shots. It's amazing what good equipment can do but, it's up to the photographer to really make the shot!! good work.

very nice shots, Donna... especially the chickadee. those little suckers don't stay put long, and they bounce around like ping-pong balls - very hard to catch. you're right, that lens will do even better with good light!

still gray and dreary here. didn't rain today, but even this early in the month, we've already had 5 times the normal rainfall for this point in the year! makes it tough to get out and do much of anything - hopefully i won't have to learn my camera all over again come springtime!!

You are right Rocky, chickadees move in a nano second...I have moved most of my feeders closer and added branches...but I need a bit of luck to capture one posing on a branch. Donna
