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.
