Default still winter, and this guy looks like he's had enough

Carolina Wren, I'm sure missing the Carolina weather on a day like today when we got 9"+ of fresh snow. These little guys are year rounders but have only recently appeared in the area as they push further north. Last year was easy on them to get established, this year, not so much.

Shot using the 70-300mm with some +EV for the white background, was luck to have the window open but tough getting focus with the snow falling even so. I am pretty pleased with the overall result considering these were shot mid blizzard with not much light. I was able to support myself pretty well, bracing against the counter next to the window, so I dialed shutter back to 1/320 to get a little more light in.

Nice captures under such tough conditions. Really like the clarity that shows the water beads on this fellow head. Good stuff

Nine inches of fresh snow -- oh, lucky you! Are you going to hit the slopes and enjoy some spring skiing?
