Slightly overexposed moments but cute to me:

they are really cute, I find black on birds faces very hard to get the exposure right.

Good golly Norm, looks like your in the nest with them. What fun. Amazing they let you so close. CAn you estimate your distance? Really nice views.

Great close-ups Norm. The third one looks like he's sticking his tongue out at you.
These guys are on my list of "user friendly" birds as they usually let me get
really close. More often than not, I'm limited by the 1.8 meter minimum
focus distance of my 100-400L when shooting these guys.

I use a set of Kenko extension tubes. You should pick a set up as it would reduce your minimum when shooting up close. Of course your infinity becomes unavailable but if the goal is shooting up close then infinity becomes somewhat redundant :-)

Thanks for dropping by for a look.

Hey Norm

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I don't have the words to adequately describe how much I admire these photographs. If I had the time and wasn't still working I would love to go to Canada wherever you are and follow you around for about a week or so. Now, what was this baby eating.:?

Thanks Houston, I appreciate the generous comments. That day the chickadees were getting into the suet baskets, then flying into a tree and getting into their traditional seed cracking and eating stance. This time, however, their little beaks were sticky with suet I believe. However, could just be a cracked seed as well here.
