Here are images of songbirds that I took over the past week. It was a delight listening to their songs.
All taken handheld.
Thanks for looking.
Jason

Great variety and well caught. Love the head-on in-flight shot. You have to wonder how many calculations per second that little in-flight computer is capable of!? Heh.

Agreed, but actually, I was joking about the computer in the little birds head, heh heh.

Some of today's fighter jets are so complicated aerodynamically that they cannot fly properly without computer-assisted stability augmentation. These take fast modern computer response to keep the plane dogfight worthy in various weather and attitudes.

As you watch a little bird like that fly, and you realize it doesn't have much of a glide ratio like bigger birds, it's more like that figher jet, that little fella has to work constantly to stay airborne, you see it looking around, taking in his environment, potential food sources, potential predator's, the winds, his lift and airspeed, etc etc etc. it's incredible all that is happening in that tiny little brain. Of course, it's hard programmed into his firmware so to speak, instinctual I guess you could say, but it is still pretty cool. Don't even get me started on watching an even smaller bumble bee flit around on a windy day trying to land on moving target flowers also getting blown around, heh heh... Nature is amazing, and so is Creation if you don't mind me saying so and believe in such things. Either way, very cool shots Jaylee!

Envious of your Meadowlark encounter, haven't seen one forever. Beautiful images, great IF captures and darn pretty colors Jason.
Goldfinch and Field Sparrow are good examples of making cover work and still have the subject be the center of attention.
All good here sir!

Thanks Chuck. Most of these images are much heavier crops than I prefer.

Thanks Karl. I haven't shot Meadowlarks in a number of years so it was nice to see them again.

These are stunners. Can I trouble you for a rundown of your technique for these little guys? Focus area preferences? I shoot sony as well and could clearly learn something from you regarding your small bif strategies. I find myself resorting to manually focusing and shooting burst to capture similar shots bc my af jumps to the background/perch on takeoff. Thanks!!
