Tree Sparrow taken without Stealth Technology
Feb 10, 2013

I am waiting for my blind to arrive so ideal chances with the 300 f4 have been limited. Ideally, small birds should be from 5 to 12 feet away for outstanding shots with the 300mm f4 DA*.   This tree sparrow landed about 6 feet away from me and I fired away at f5.6.  The background is a brick wall and I had to open the lens up to compensate for less than ideal lighting. I expect that the photo ops will increase after the blind arrives from the vendor. This image will make a very nice print. (K10d, 300mm f4 DA*, f5.6, Av mode +.66ev, natural light). Workflow=Levels, Topaz Detail 3 85%opacity, Gaussian blur 8 pixels layer mask to soften BG)...........................Jim
