[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot from the University of Guelph. The chickadee is from the tit family.

Wikipedia tells us: These birds hop along tree branches searching for food, sometimes hanging upside down or hovering; they may make short flights to catch insects in the air. Insects form a large part of their diet, especially in summer; seeds and berries become important in winter. They sometimes hammer seeds on a tree or shrub to open them; they also will store seeds for later use. Black-capped Chickadees are known to remember the position of hundreds or more of their food caches for up to a month.

Hi Josh,

I like the composition of this shot. However, It is blurred inspite of your ISO being 800. Your DOF might have been higher than required for a bird of this size. Like the OOF BG.

hello Josh

very beautiful composition, excellent focus with nice details of the bird,
i like the pov of your image but personnaly for the framing
i would go horizontal framing giving less place at top of the image
and more place at the right of the image where the bird is looking

Hi Josh,

A nice compo with good colors and details,well exposed on the light BG which looks great,only think which could have been better is the sharpness of the chicadee,well done and tfs

Paul

I like composition but the image isn't very sharp
iso800 and 75-300...not good

when you can upgrade your lens try 70-200f4 or 70-300is
