    Wow. Stunning captures!
    Absolutely love the second and third...

    May I ask what lens you used?

    Thanks. I used a Tokina 400mm 5.6. I shot these from less than 10 feet away from the feeder, at the closest focus distance of the lense because that is where it is sharpest. The hard part was sitting still for long enough where they didn't notice me and felt safe enough to come down and feed. Took about 30 minutes.

    I really like the chikadee in the last shot. Only wish the backgound was a different color. The black of his head blends in.

    Yeah, I actually lightened the shot a bit to bring out his head. I may try to play around with it in post-processing to see if I can improve it.
