    I had one VERY cooperative Black Phoebe let me take some 60 pictures yesterday afternoon. Our session lasted over a half hour! Once I got those pictures I moved to a better location, but he/she left for the day. As I'm typing this, he's back, so I hope to get some more shots this afternoon....with better lighting.

    The last image is my favorite. He was really showing off for you. I think he likes his picture taken. Nice work.

    The last picture is my favourite also !
    Its got a lot of character as if the bird was suspiciously looking behind him/her:lol:
    But at the same time the twinkle in its eye makes you have some sympathy for it!

    I like the composition of the shots...

    Did you adjust the color temperature or use a warming filter?

    I can't decide if it's just what's behind him or if the colors are a little off...

    About 10-15 feet.


    No, I left the color temp as it was and I don't own any warming filters. It was around 3PM and the background is my dying grass! :lol:

    songbirds are adorable. there's a cardinal and some larger brown songbird outside our computer room that pecks the window for a while every morning and peeks in. lovely picture. i like their stout little bodies and short necks.
