The bird feeder and some these birds may look familiar to you if you followed me last spring. This time I have birds in flight images for you. 🙂
See the Dove opens her wings and tail at the same time. It sure looks like she was dancing with a beautiful ruffle shirt.
Due to Dove’s size, it always a struggle for them to land on the bar of the feeder, which was designed for smaller birds.
See how Mr. D opened his wings and pushed his wings all the way to the back for a landing:
After some practices, this time Blue Jay Jr. has his legs up and keeps a good balance. He made it!
Miss. Sparrow is showing off her landing skills. Cardinal Jr. is watching, but not so thrilled.
Before everyone else shows up, Mrs. C decides to dance around the feeder.
I had my Canon set on a tripod, was patiently watching, waiting, and clicking through my kitchen window. I had no idea who was going to dash in/out, when his/she was going to slow down, or speed up, it all depends on the situation. So, I turned the AI Servo on and the continuous mode, pressed the cable button halfway (which made the battery drain fast). 99.99% of the time, I either fire up a half second early or late. My patience had been tested, say the least. 🙂 Out of several dozens of shots, only 5, 6 are okay.
