What can I say, it’s David Akoubian’s fault! I guess I was asking for it when I got his opinion on upgrading my long lens. Now, I’m addicted to watching the birds around my house and trying to get just one more good shot. On the positive side, the new Tamron 150-600 makes getting good shots a lot easier.
I sit out in the yard and watch the birds, hoping that they will land in a spot that will have some light, not be blocked by miscellaneous branches and where the birds are posing for me. At the same time, I find that the birds occasionally seem to enjoy watching me. When this female cardinal stopped at one of the few “perfect spots”, she kept cocking her head to the side with an expression like “what the heck are you doing?”.
Yeah, photographers are kind of crazy.
