Northern Cardinal in Winter

A Northern Cardinal enjoys the mild winter weather

Another photo of one of my backyard Northern Cardinals.  This one was taken with my Canon 7D and 400 mm lens at f/5.6.  The 7D and 400 mm lens combination is quickly becoming my favorite photo setup for bird photography.  The 300mm with Kenko Pro 300 DGX 1.4 teleconverter is very nice and has the advantage of Image Stabilization, but the fast focusing of the 400mm lens is my preference for birds.  I think the 300mm will be my “bugs and flowers” lens, mainly because of it’s ability to focus at a relatively close 4.92 feet, as opposed to the 400 mm’s 11.48 Minimum Focus Distance (MFD).
