Love the ruffled feathers. Just trying to stay on the branch in the wind! Great shot Mike, that background is a perfect.

I was literally bombarded with Orioles all weekend but didn't get one decent shot because of the wind. Frustrating.

Nice (as usual, again). I really have to pick up an f/2.8 lens. I love the smooth backgrounds you're able to get with the lower aperture and background separation. Good work.

Thanks Cheryl, Hunt, DMN and Jayin. I sometimes overlook photographing the Sparrows, but they come in all varieties and colors and are fun to chase around.

The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests.
