This sweet little fluff ball, the White Throated Sparrow, sheltered the blizzard conditions we experienced in the Washington-Baltimore area on December 19th, 2009, in the river birch behind my deck (and not more than a hop and a skip from the full birdie-feeder).
Focal Distance 300mm.
Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 70-300mm vr Nikon lens. Shutter 1/250, aperture f/9.0, exposure -.33, iso 1,000, spot metering. I used on-board fill flash .. which I almost never bother with … but was very pleased with the results. Very little post processing … cropping and a touch of dodging and burning to the eye to make it pop a little bit.
