Yellow-Rumped Warbler

Dark-Eyed Junco

All were shot this week on my back deck during a rare snow/ice storm that shut down Atlanta for three days. I couldn't get out, so used the time to practice. Shot at a distance of about 15 feet using 180 to 250mm focal length (360-500 full-frame equivalent) giving good isolation. I cropped and tweaked them in LR 5.3. My 100-300 is turning out to be a worthy lens.

I'll try to post a few more later.
