I mentioned the other day that I setup a bird feeding area in the front yard. I did so because I got tired of driving one hour each way to the nearest good bird blind to photograph birds. So, since the same birds frequent this area I thought it would cut down on my expenses and time and provide me with an ad-hoc bird photography area as well. At first, no birds came and then I moved it about 30 feet under some trees and then all of the sudden I had more birds than I was asking for… Now I have hundreds of birds flocking to feed at the newly built station every day. One of the first birds to appear was this nice Black-crested Titmouse. I got lucky enough to capture this image as he did a “Peek-a-Boo” around the bird feeder. I thought his expression was priceless.

This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 Lens +my Canon 1.4x extender for a total focal length of 560 mm. The camera was set on Aperture priority mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/640th of a second and the ISO set at 250. This is a single image processed in Lightroom.
