And late at night,too. I find their greatest activity is just at sundown but now and then they seem to enjoy late night. This was about 11 PM and there was some frantic competition to get to the feeder. Many, many frames to manage to catch a few good shots. June 6, 2006 Sony DSCF828 camera
Taken on my side deck at home in North Saanich, Vancouver Island,Canada

    That’s a good pic for daytime. Fantastic for nighttime.

  • Thanks Stan. I didn’t use flash. I had a small 60 watt spotlight mounted on the deck and aimed up at the feeder. The wall of the house is only about 3 feet in the background,but the spot had such a sharp beam, the wall didn’t show up at all. There’s no fill used in the photo. I was really pleased the way it turned out.
