Tag Archives: Purple Finch

“Linked In” (Purple Finch, Female) Nikon D300, 1000mm (600mm w/1.7x teleconverter), F/6.7, 1/100s, -0.3EV, ISO 640, Silver Efex Pro ‘Full Spectum’ Filter

In my opinion, good observation is one of the best skills a photographer can develop, especially in the unpredictable world of wildlife photography.

Take this unusual capture of a female Purple Finch for example…you simply can NOT plan for shots like this!

Now in this case, having a large lens already set up helped, but even so, when my radar goes off, I know time is of the essence and I must manuever quickly in order to be successful. 

Four clicks was all I got and ONE was all I needed! 🙂
