A Few Yard Birds...
Lens: 300 Camera: K-M, A* 300 F4 Photo Location: East Tennessee ISO: 400 
Posted By: mole, 03-02-2010, 05:37 AM

Took a few moments at one of the bird feeders to snap a few shots of the hungry "critters," packing away seed before the next snow.

There were plenty of Carolina Wrens and Carolina Chickadees:

There were also plenty of Titmice and Song Sparrows:

But only a few (very shy) Towhees...

Glad for any comments/critique!

These look perfect to me - I don't know how you get these so sharp.

Outstanding mole.

Great work with that A*300/4. I've an opportunity to pick one up and your shots might just push me over the edge.

Wildman - Thanks so much. I am blessed to live where there are lots of great little birds...

Jer - You are too kind! The A*300 is definitely a sharp little lens.

Tom - Thanks! Mine came from here at the forums. A very scratched front element, but still nice and sharp if stopped down just a bit.

Heinrich - Thanks so much! And thanks for looking and commenting!
