House Finch
In reply to tylerken, Mar 19, 2013

6D with 70-200 f/4L: f/4; FL: 200mm; SS: 1/400; ISO: 100; shot in RAW and PP in Lightroom; crop and a touch of unsharp in Gimp.

Male House Finch sitting on the back of a patio chair on our frozen deck.  He was sitting pretty close to the window for a few seconds while we were eating our supper, so I started creeping toward him like a cat!  I wish I could have gotten closer, but I managed to snap a few before he disappeared.

Hi all,

recently we had rare visitors in our area (Bavaria)

I only saw them 3x while being 45 now - and only once I had my gear with me

In german they are called 'Seidenschwanz' (=silktail) but I think they are known as cedar waxwings in english ?!

Happy shooting, Klaus

N. America has 2 varieties of waxwings, cedar and bohemian (the latter being a little larger).  Eurasia has only the Bohemian.

These would be the Bohemian waxwing with the rusty coloured undertail showing in shot 2.

It always surprises me when the female is better looking than the male.

Here are two images I took this morning here in Oviedo,Florida,USA

Wow, that combo made for a present photo.  Wish I had a Canon 6D.  But Digic 6 is out there somewhere.

Thanks! I went out to shoot mountain pano and found not 1, but 2 lone eagles on the trip. (About 25 miles apart.) The first was being tormented by a flock of magpies. This one pictured was just sitting on the side of the highway in a tree 2 or 3 trees back.

Red tailed hawk...  My 10-yr-old son spotted it as we were driving down the road.  That lovely tail is hard to miss!
