Came across these guys this past weekend. There were a small group peckin'
around at the grasses that were sticking out of the snow. Anyway, here's
a few pics.

Drebel, 100-400L @ 400, ISO 400, Av, f/8, 1/1600 sec,EC +1 2/3, 50% crop


Drebel, 100-400L @ 400, ISO 400, Av, f/8, 1/640 sec,EC +1 2/3, 50% crop


This one's not as detailed as the others, but he was doing a balancing act
on this hunk of grass which probably accounts for his softness in some areas.

Very good Woodmeister. Looks like you have the technique of shooting in the snow worked out to perfection.

Thanks for the comments. I am starting to get a little better at shooting in
the snow. I have ericCAN to thank for the shooting tips.

Both are very good but the last one is a real winner. The shadow, stretch pose,exposure, and dead grass all fit tightly into a very well done work.

Thanks Norm. There's always that little extra feel of accomplishment when
I can catch a critter in the act of doing what critters do.

Really nice series. Well composed and taken. Excellent job on the snow, I can't decide if I like no. 2 or 3 best. Really good job.
