Carolina Chickadees in the Sun
3 Attachment(s)
Had a brief bit of winter sunshine yesterday, between the storms, and time to try out my new (used) A*300 lens at the feeder. Our Carolina Chickadees were frisky as usual, but not too frisky for some photos:

Nuthatches were much shier - only got one OK shot...

Hoping for more sunshine soon, but expecting more ice & snow to enjoy instead. Hope your birding days are bright!

Those Chickadee's are certainly photogenic!
Good job Mole.

Beautiful! That third one looks 3D.

Cold weather always makes the little guys plump up - really increases the cuteness factor! No 3 is especially nicely posed - stands out well against the background.

Gary - Glad you enjoyed it! I've been really pleased with most of the results with my new/old 300mm lens - especially in bright light.

Penolta - So true! They've been especially cute (& cold) this winter!

Alady40 - They sure are cute little birds - just usually too fast for me... Thanks!

Wow, these Carolina Chickadees are fantastic... I like the colour of the bird in the first picture, I like the sort of "pose" or just your good way of composing these birds... I am not into birds per se... but looking at your pictures really has me stopping and taking a good look. Again, my son passed by the computer, he stopped too, just to admire the birds... Really fantastic work! But it is so jok'n cold here in Finland that I think the birds are laying low.

Thanks for sharing these photos. All the best.
