On Saturday New York City was forecast to receive between 2 and 4 inches of snow. I love to take photos of the birds at my feeder when itís snowing so I made shore to fill it in the morning and then watched as visitors arrived. I chose to use my 180mm f2.8 as shutter speed helps prevent subject blur. It started to snow, and then turned to sleet and then rain and back to snow before ending leaving us with a nice pretty coat of snow on the grass and foliage. One of my favorite images was taken during a blizzard a few years ago using a P&S with a TC on it.

The woodpecker was hiding under the branch and stuck itís head out as if to see if the snow was still falling. I was there to trip the shutter as it got a face full of snow.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

These are all nice Morris, but that last shot is excellent! What a unique angle and the snow bouncing off the head makes for a very interesting shot.

Cheers,

This is a lovely set Morris. The last one is very neat with all the snow bouncing off of the bird.

Really nice shots of the most common woodpecker around and ON my house. They may be pretty, and your last shot particularly is wonderful but they wreck havoc with my siding year after year trying to get at the larvae of carpenter bees.
Happy New Year to you and yours Morris!

I like 4 and 6 best Morris... I'm surprised you didn't use the BB on these.
The last is a terrific image, I love the snow hitting him on the head.
HNY!
