Backyard birds

By the time I get finished with all the setup for photographing birds in my backyard they will probably have moved on.  I did spend some time today just trying to get “proof of concept”.  Now to get some decent perching material and add some remote flash to fill the inevitable shadows.  I learned today that I need to muffle the shutter if I’m to gain an upper hand on these skittish birds.

10 minutes after I posted this image I went to take the camera gear down and this male goldfinch showed up and sat on the bit of pathetic perch I put up recently.  Yup, I think this could work after all.
