I know this is another bird image, but they are just so fun to photograph right now it's ridiculous.
I did leave my yard for this one, however. This image of the Red Winged Blackbird was taken at the Alabama A&M University Research Farm near Hazel Green, AL. I was able to get over there one day last week when I was off work to photograph.
I was able to see a few different species of birds that I don't get to see in my backyard, normally. I do get Red Winged Blackbirds in my backyard, but they never stay very long or are always in the bad light, so I was happy to get a decent shot of one while I was there.
This image was taken handheld using the Sony Alpha 77ii and Tamron 150-600mm Lens. I don't know if you can say it was handheld, technically...I kinda used my car as a tripod ;)
