A recent snowy afternoon with nothing pressing to do was the perfect time to while away a few hours photographing a few of our winter birds.
Proper exposure can be a little tricky when shooting on snowy backgrounds. Depending upon the light overexposure may be necessary. I used +.5 - +1 stops of compensation to capture the images displayed on this post. When shooting on snow check the camera's LCD and if your images are too dark (as they often will be) dial in some comp. and nail a set of images that you can be proud of.
