Digiscoped Sedge Wren


(click on image for larger version)

If you've been monitoring my gallery, you may have noticed I don't digiscope birds as much as I used to. As viewing birds for enjoyment is superseding taking pictures them (which is often a huge pain and time consuming effort), I won't refuse an opportunity to capture a bird that is just begging to be photographed.

Most of the time now when entering Pheasant Branch Conservancy in search of songbirds, I don't usally bother bringing spotting scope and camera along. This morning was different - it had that certain je ne sais quoi with the light that instinctively seems to set one day apart from another in the photographer's mind. So I brought along the scope and camera and captured this SEDGE WREN in beautiful golden morning light. Speaking of light, here's the EXIF data for the above shot:
