So, which lens are you using? Better yet, give me all the settings. You stopped these in motion very well... but way up where you are, the quality of light isn't as good during the winter. It just isn't as bright right now (Even on a full sunny day.)

You did a great job getting these shots. Makes me think I should try something similar. Put a stump in my back yard and some seeds on it and see what happens. Should probably build a temporary blind to hind myself, though.

Hi eric, appreciate you taking some time to have a peek. I was using the 200/1.8, settings below.As you can see I was in experiment mode. These were shot in a woodlandpark where someone had previously dropped a variety of seeds on to the stump. It was an old stump so many of the seeds had gotten caught inside the stump core which required the visitors to peck a bit to get at the morsels. Great for the photographs since they had to stick around a bit:

#1 - 1/1600, 4.5, ISO 800

#2 - 1/1250, 5, ISO 1250

#3 - 1/1000, 5.6, ISO 800

#4 - 1/1600, 4,ISO 250

#5 - 1/1600, 4.5, ISO 400

Great shots Normcar.

I just came back home after a month long vacation. Will take some time to go through rest of the posts.

Welcome back bobby, I look forward to seeing a few of the photos you took on vacation (I'd be surprised if you don't have a few in the bag).
