Northern cardinal in our backyard. [NIKON Z 9, VR 120-300mm f/2.8G, Mode = Manual, ISO 8000, 1/500, ƒ/5.6, (35mm = 600)]
Today we had winter advisory for our area. So, I was having to stay put and decided to use this as opportunity to photograph birds in our backyard.
When there isn’t snow the photos look like this. The snow changes the lighting, background and when the snow is falling creates more depth with snow surrounding the birds.
When the snow started to fall the trees were still not covered.
Slowly through the day the snow steadily came down. Changing the look of the same spots where the birds came to feed.
One of the fun things to do is research and see what is visiting the backyard bird feeders.
