Male House Finch in my backyard on a cloudy afternoon
Morning and afternoon backyard bird shoot
3 December 2016
Photographed from inside my Doghouse popup blind. The background for this setup shot was one of my three Dogwood 'Arctic Fire' shrubs in my wildlife garden. The bird was about 8 feet away, allowing me to shoot with my 70-200mm lens at 200mm. f/2.8 at 1/1000s and ISO 2200 with my Nikon D500 camera.
