After many unsuccessful attempts to getreally sharp and in focus shots of birds at the feeders using telephotos lenses I decided to try a new approach. I set the camera on a tripod close to the feeders (about 2 feet) and using a Sigma 105mm macro lens along with a 50ft wired remote shutter release I was able to get some pretty decent shots. I used manual exposure and manual focusing. Here is an example:

Very nice images, worked out well!

Did you cover the camera with anything, I would have been worried about the birds using the camera as a perch and doing bad things on it :blah:

Thank you for the compliment. No, I didn't cover the camera and they didn't seem to be interested in perching on it.
