I don’t mind saying so, but once in awhile I come up with some mighty cute pictures. I’d like to share this one of a Canyon Towhee, that I photographed several weeks ago.
The Canyon Towhee looks somewhat drab at times, but I love the muted grays and browns. This species is a ground dweller, hangs out in dense brush but feeds on the ground nearby. They are similar to the California Towhee, and until recently, they were considered a single species, Brown Towhee. Click on image to see an enlargement. Enjoy.
I love this picture
Cute? I’d say adorable! 🙂 This is a really gorgeous image: fantastic clarity in detail and colour, and the lovely shimmering bokeh.
Thanks Cindy, good to hear from you again.
Beautiful! great detail, I like he beautiful bokeh that you get, but the detail in the bird and the surface he is perched upon are the shot maker 🙂
The lenses that I use are the Canon L-series, I’m sure you are familiar with them. They are tack sharp.
However, I have come across a real neat new software. It is called Focus Magic, downloadable at 45.00. I use it on even my best pictures that I depended on auto-focus, that I thought were right on in sharpness. This software can detect the tiniest little difference and improve on what I thought was excellence. It doesn’t replace your sharpening tools, just improves the oriinal focus.
You can download it at http://www.focusmagic.com.
Another good one, Bob!
Another beautiful shot!! I love this bird, he looks like he’d be soft and cuddly, and the colors are gorgeous! 🙂
Soon you will be doing this with your new camera.
I love shooting pretty much wide-open aperture priority because it has such a shallow DOF, and leaves such a wonderful bokeh in the background. I shoot usually between f4 and f6.3 for my bird photography, depending on the light.
But I must give credit to this magnificent 18MP Canon EOS 7D. I am so pleased with the combination with my Canon 100-400 lens or my 500mm lens. It certainly makes my job so much easier.
Bob, this is a great shot! Your photography is so good. So in focus! Great DOF! I love seeing your birds everyday. Anotyher great job.
