These are my backyard buddies. I took a break from shoveling and did some shooting. Not because I’ve never shot these birds before, but because I’ve never shot them in such difficult light. So this is more of a photo study to tell myself that when I stop whining and take out my gear I can actually get something done.
Now mind you, I don’t have the beans for real fancy long lenses. These were all shot at 300mm on my D7100 in crop sensor mode.
