Print of the Week

Pine siskin
Pine siskin, Masset, Haida Gwaii, BC, July 2013
This is one from our road trip to Haida Gwaii last summer, at the Delkatla Nature Sanctuary just outside Masset. We were up in an observation tower which put us at eye level, and he cooperated in sitting still long enough to have his picture taken.

This was taken with the new Sigma 150 - 500 telephoto lens at 500mm. I was shooting handheld, so I boosted the shutter speed to 1/750 which meant a high ISO of 6400, but the noise wasn't too bad.
