Winter Bluebird by mydigitalmind Winter Bluebird by mydigitalmind
I had a small flock of bluebirds visit my yard - they did not make use of the feeders, just my trees and a few berry bushes around the proximity.

Shot through my window.

Eastern Bluebird (female)
Vestal, New York
Canon 5D / EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

So clear and crisp~ Yes the little bluee bird still looks soft and fluffy! :]
The colours meld nicely and the little touch of blue~~
The branches provide a nice side frame
the subject seems to be looking towards spring (like many of us) ^^

Very nice capture...I like how the subtle shades of blues in its wing and tail feathers are brought out. :)

Very nice. I have a pair that nests in my neighbor's Boxes. They eat raisins from the feeder.

Thank you! I didn't know they'd eat raisins! I plan on also putting out feeder boxes with some mealworms nearby :)

how much did you pay for your lens?

I'm so so super tempted to get this Sigma lens 150-500mm F5-6.3 for almost $900.

I bought it used for $1000 - I always keep an eye on craigslist to see if I can get a good deal. So far, I purchased my 70-200 and 100-400 lenses plus my 5D for great prices, used. All in perfect condition.

I bought my 25-105mm lens for $1k too but 105 is not much comparing to 500mm. :D so so tempted but that's a lot of money.

I know the feeling! Every large purchase I made for upgrading my camera was really worth it though.
