Feeder Photos

 During the bleak days of winter I often daydream of traveling south to shoot the splendid birdlife of Florida.  At other times my mind drifts to Maryland's eastern shore and relives a winter daybreak in Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge.  While photo trips to more distant places are fun and often quite productive, many a winter day can be brightened by spending time focused on the visitors to a backyard feeder.
 
The following photos were shot at our naturalized feeders using a Canon 6D, EF600mm f\4 L IS.

The lighting is awesome on these Coy. Is it the setting sun or rising sun? It has the warmth of a setting sun!
