These hungry Sparrows were my test subjects as I tried out my new lens!
A little while ago I finally bought a 400mm lens and one sunny day I decided to try it out. I baited my poppy feeder as it is an easy, if not natural, place to shoot birds, and I waited.
I didn’t have to wait long for the birds to arrive. Mr Blackbird grabbed a quick snack, but I mostly saw Sparrows 🙂
There was quite a bit of competition for the food!
I got some reasonable solo shots of both male and female sparrows and the lens worked well. I have much still to learn though.
