    Just about 15 minutes ago the Red Headed Woodpecker made a visit to the set up .... a new species for me, also the spring migration is coming through as well because I had Rose Breasted Grosbeaks and a Summer Tanager.

    1D MKIV
    700mm
    ISO 3200
    f/5.6
    1/640
    No flash

    Awesome! I was wondering when you were going to have a Red-headed up here...

    Wow - that is an amazing color Joel. I am jealous of the woodpeckers (pecker envy? ). Here's another bluebird from this morning. And the pair on a perch I recently added - too bad I didn't get a shot with both bird's heads in focus. Try, try again.

    Struggled with the light this morning. The background behind the perch was in the sun, but the perch was in the shade. Luckily the bird had a little patience with me to experiment - 5DMKIII, 840mm, f8, ISO1600, +2 1/3 stops over evaluative metering, better beamer w 600EX, -2/3 stops fill flash, cropped to 3000X3500. I'm not too sure about the result though. Too much flash?

    Vern...I love the detail you are getting with your Bluebird images and the blue feathers seem to have an iridescence to them.

    Here's the Hairy Woodpecker I spoke of yesterday

    It was very overcast/shady today and I switched to the 1DX to see how it would handle the conditions.....the high ISO images really clean up so nice it is surprising. Much better than the 1D MKIV. My biggest wish is that I would like it to have the same pixel density as the 1DMKIV.

    One of my primary "nemesis birds" came to my perches today.....I have been trying to get this to happen for at least 4 years! Unless you are familiar with this species the image may not fully do it justice because of it's overall size. This is a pretty big bird....on the order 14 to 16 inches tall and a wing span of close to 2 feet. They are very impressive. When they fly close to you the wing beats are very loud. I don't know why it finally happened but he came right in today when I played a call on my ipod. I have done this hundreds of times before and he has flown past at close range and today he finally decided to land in my set up. Hope you enjoy looking, it was a big thrill for me today

    That is one beautiful bird!!! Glad you didn't have your lens set to 700mm or you might have only had a portrait. :-) Congratulations on the bird!
