Shooting Birds...with your camera

April 09, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Red Cardinal with Spring FeverWhy are you looking at me! This cardinal has spent two days in a row attacking his reflection on the top of my car.  He was pecking so hard you could hear it from inside the house and as you can see, made quite a mess.  It was really fun to watch tho, and gave a great opportunity to brush up on shooting birds.  For this little fella, it took a Shutter Speed of 1000 to keep him clear with just enough motion to make it interesting.  A faster shutter would have stopped all motion, but when the fun part of the event IS the motion, I think you want to see it in your photograph.  The color of our sad looking brown grass even made a nice blurred background at f5.6.   The nicer days and all of the wildlife beginning to come out of hiding makes me excited about getting outside too.  I have some photo "goals" for this year that I will work on in my spare time.  I hope you have some photo goals too... I'd love to hear about them.  Feel free to share. Remember, Keep those batteries charged up and a fresh card in the camera.  I'll get you no matter how long it takes.Cardinal attacking reflection.I Fly like a Butterfly...Sting like a Bee!
