Pastel by mydigitalmind Pastel by mydigitalmind
One of the more colorful songbirds that I saw in Costa Rica. My husband was taking photos of me - I was a little annoyed that he wanted me to stop birding so that I could pose for his camera!! Then this little guy flew in and I had to divert my attention. After the Tanager flew away, I posed for more photos - and I had a much more natural and happier smile ;)

I'm just curious, since you are using that 100-400mm lens do you have to use a tripod to get these shots? *Ironpaw has been thinking about upgrading his lens but he hand-holds pretty much all the time and he doesn't think he would be able to do that with a 400mm lens.

I also hand hold my lens all the time - never use a tripod. The lens is heavy, but one thing that helps is that I put the camera strap around my shoulder (like a sling) rather than around my neck. It helps with the weight.
