This Weather is for the Birds


It is too cold outside to do much but I decided to sit in the sunroom and try to take pictures of birds. Actually I was trying to take pictures of birds in flight. This is harder than it looks. I shot close to 300 photos and wasn’t really happy with any of them. High ISO settings and shooting wide open to freeze the action made for photos that were not as sharp as I would like. I was using a Nikkor 28-300 on my D300. I am guessing I need to find a way to use a flash. I wonder if this would freak the birds out though.
