Fly By

Our backyard is a bluebird vacation spot. We love having them spend their summers with us and in turn we get to watch multiple broods of bluebird babies join the world. All of these pictures are shots of the bluebirds flying into, out of, or near the nesting box.

  3. WOW ! All of your bird shots are amazing ! Such clarity and focus. Now I am truly jealous. Do you have your set up on a tripod? Looks like you’ve figured out how to create the perfect playground to get such wonderful visitors.

    • Thanks very much. I do use a tripod to get the bird shots; especially with the 100-400mm. The Bluebirds like to make you hang around a while before they trust you. It’s been a lot of fun having them nest in the backyard again this year so hopefully we’ll get another round of them next year!

      • I’ll need to try better to use the tripod then. You’d think with such high shutter speeds and IS, the photos wouldn’t need a tripod to be so perfect. But so it is, probably cuz it’s so hefty.

      • I agree and I’ve taken tons of shots not using the tripod if I’m in a hurry and they’ve come out pretty good, but I have better luck using the 100-400 on a steady surface, Even if it’s my elbow on something.
