I really like it too.
I like how the left leg is holding its weight while the right leg is keeping its body kicked out from the tree and posing with its tail in an almost perfect vertical position.
Really neat looking song birds.
Great pose for sure and nicely captured!
Question: I never see any of the bark butter in your images, is the bark butter farther up on the tree and the chickadee is waiting its turn at the butter?
I have some common feeders with sunflower seeds in them and the birds always treat it as first come first serve, all others wait their turn
I want to try some bark butter so I can get a few shots without the feeders.
I hope to get a few decent shots of some nuthatches we have, the cardinals are starting to show up but only one or two bluebirds so far
Thanks Allen, I like that the butter isn’t showing in the image and that’s what I want to try to do with my own.
I was just curious about the bird’s behavior by perching at a spot where the butter isn’t
In other words, is the Chickadee waiting for other birds to move away from the butter or is it just hanging out? (Pun intended)
Very nice Allen! The background is a great compliment to a chickadee. I also love the textures that you captured in the bird and the trunk. Chickadees are my most common visitor as well and I strive to get something as good as this!
Everything looks spot on to me, Allen. All the techs are there and it appears you did some really nice work in the processing. A beautiful image. BTW, I just bought an R7 yesterday, along with the RF 100-500mm Telephoto Zoom. Starting the learning curve today!
Hi Allen, this is really nice. The background is nicely soft and helps to set off the bird. I feel the whole image could use a boost in brightness some…could be my monitor. I would also take a small dodge brush and brighten up the eye.
I really like this one, however your Nuthatch image was fantastic as well.
Another nice image from your hand; love the species and overall image. It is a little dark and I wonder of the cheek color is true to the bird, or that it should/could be a bit whiter (instead of grayish white as it is now). I ask, since I do not know the species but most European ‘equivalents’ have pretty white cheeks. Either way, love the image ! Cheers, Hans
