Default Shooting with snow...

...is like shooting into a giant reflector! Especially, when the sun pokes out. My hat's off to those that do it successfully! It sure does provide some interesting light, though!

Nice shots - in tough exposure conditions...I change to spot, get the subject and pretty much let the rest blow out...hard to average exposure and get all that you want.

These are superb.

What he said. Good captures.

Looks like those Finches want to be in the sun down in Cabo with their cousins. (and my cookies)

Indeed very beautiful pictures Gary!!
The picture I like most is #1, it has definitely something specials with that second bird in background.

I agree with photo #1, although I'm thinking the blurred bird in the foreground is the one that is a little "special"

I did saw the picture on my laptop and here it looks like the background bird is blurred. Weird.
Can someone check please?

I followed the dowel out with my eyes and it appears that the feet of the blurred bird are closer to the camera. Either way great shot!
