Once the feeders have been up for awhile you get a sense of which of the perches they’ll tend to favorite. This allows me to setup the camera on a tripod, take aim and wait with the wired remote in hand.

This was shot with the flash and using the 70-300G lens

    I had no idea so many different lens could make such a difference. I’m not much of a photographer, obviously. Great photos, Jay!
