Another Chickadee shot..
Posted By: scott-devon, 03-01-2009, 05:55 PM

These guys are always around when you want a subject it seems.

I spent the morning out shopping with the wife and of course found time to slip into a camera store where I broke down and bought a new Manfroto compact ball head for my tripod as my old ballhead had a sloppy fit on the quick release plate. So on arriving home I switched out my old one and went out for an hour to try it out. It was worth every penny, much tighter fit on the quick release and a single control for the ball instead of the two my cheaper ballhead had. I immediately felt more secure carrying the camera mounted to the tripod over my shoulder.

Anyhow, here's my shot from that quick walk...
