Wintry Weather


We've been having lots of sleet and ice for the last two days, but the birds have just been hanging out in it all! I love redbirds, and I was lucky to catch this guy perching, they're usually pretty skittish, and I can't get anywhere near close enough to take a decent picture. The photo seems a little grainy, but part of that noise is actually sleet. My settings were AV mode, f5.6, ss 1/1250, 800 ISO, 75-300mm lens, 300mm focal length. I'm beginning to see a pattern - I shoot nearly all of my pictures in AV mode at f5.6! I think I'm in a rut! :) Anyway, cropped and border added in PSE4. CC appreciated! Thanks!

Awesome Cardinal! I have several families of Cardinals in our backyard but I can never seem to catch them sitting quietly! Love this photo!
