Black-crested Titmouse

My neighbors have graciously offered me use of their wonderful bird blind.  This type of photography is incredibly challenging for me.  I certainly miss a lot more shots than I get but on that rare occasion when I do get something good it's very satisfying.

Canon 5D with EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens at 200mm
ISO 400     f/4.0     1/500
Spot metered on the bird (in order to properly expose the bird since the background was so bright)

You can read more about this bird on my Flickr site.
