These photographs were taken as the sun first began to shine through the trees.
This sparrow was one of the first birds to not only stop by, but to stay still long enough for some test shots. I used spot metering here rather than the typical method. Also a medium lens of 300mm.
I have been wanting to pay more attention to metering methods and bird photography. This morning seemed as good a time as any.
I choose the medium size 300mm lens for a specific reason also. I needed a free hand for my coffee.
