Amusing series, Norm. Any of these would makeexcellent Xmas/New Year's cards.
Just how cold was it, anyway? That poorlittle bird looks really stressed - in #2 it is reaching the point of no return, where it would lose more heat through its open feathers than it can retain! Gives me the shivers just looking!

May your new year bring warmer days, for you and for the birds!
Thanks :-) I'm used to seeing them turn into snowballs but every so often I run into a chickadee that breaks the "fluff" mold. Happy new year to you as well

Thanks a bunch, Squir, it's nice to have the high ISO option in the dark of the North :-)

:lol::lol::lol: I half expected to see a little air hose coming out the back of those over inflated little puff-balls. What a crack up.

Great, great shots.

Thanks Steve, I tried to hide the hose behind the branch :lol:

Norm, Once again I'm very impressed with the clarity and detail on the Chickadees feathers. The shades of grey and blacks in the compositions are technically perfect.I do wish I could shoot withthe higher ISOs with the D200 but I just get wayto much noise in the end result and need to resort to fill flash.I just may have to purchase a D300 since I'm really liking what I'm seeing in Steve' s (SMAC) shots.



-Kent





Thanks Kent, I agree with you on the D300. Steve is demonstrating that it has some awsome capabilities.
