What better way to spend a long-weekend Monday than wandering around for three or four hours at the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary.
My favourite shot of the day - hummingbird in flight
For those curious the tech specs are: Nikon D300,
handheld Nikkor AF-S 70-300 VR zoom at 300mm
(35mm equivalent of 450mm), ISO 1250, 1/500 @ f9.
Aperature priority, +1.0 EV.
No post-processing aside from cropping.
Hummingbird with tongue sticking out
Chickadees are pretty darn cute, too
Red-winged blackbird letting a crow know its not wanted
Crow stares at nattering blackbird
Mom in convoy
A mass of cuteness
Swallows are way cool
And way pretty
Yumi surrounded by goslings
Parents keep a sharp eye out
When they're not snoozing
The ubiquitous heron
The rare sandhill crane
Some sort of finch? I'm still not good at my small birds
