I have several immature birds in my backyard and have been trying too get photos of as many as possible. I shoot birds in H burst mode trying to get the most pleasingbody and head positions possible. Here is 2 of the 4 shots I got of the immature female cardinal. Which one do you like the best??? Thanks for looking and any and all comments greatly appreciated.

5EZ = 15X, A Mode, F4, 1/125, ISO80, 535MM, & Tripod.

Hi Keith,

Hard to choose as both are nice! I leanto a small degreetowards number one as the head of the second is near the tree branch and is distracting a bit.

Are all the birds that you postfrom your back yard? You must have quite a yard!

Hi Emmanuel,

Most all the birds that I post are made in my backyard. I have several feeders filled with sunflower, thistle, wild bird seed, cracked corn, peanuts, and some suiet.... The birds eat better than I do :shock:..........Once in a while I will walk over and take a few shots in my neighbors backyard,, he has an old apple tree that attracts several birds.

Thanks Emmanuel

Keith

As stated both are fantastic shots. I also lean slightly to the first shot, but both are very good to the point of straw pulling. I also have bird feeders, as many as 12 to 16 at times. In Jan, Feb, March, and April, I often feed close to 50 lbs a week... Have several old photos taken with an Olympus C700, but don't post them on here.

as usual, your photos are very sharp.

Jerry.
