This is another image from my last Sunday morning outing. Same tree as for the image below of the White-breasted Nuthatch, this time it was a Red-breasted variety. Since Mark Graf mentioned it in his comment I thought I’d bring this image to show. Their both attractive birds with great character. The tree was a great setting for both of them and the little bit of snow falling only adds to the feeling.

I’m working with a Canon EF 500mm f4.0 lens with a Canon TC1.4 for a total optical array of 700mm wide open at f5.6. The camera mounted was a Canon 1D Mark II set at ISO 800. I’m still working at only 1/50th of a second so image stabilization was a needed assist. Of course a tripod with Wimberly Side-Kick were in use as well.
