We had a very special treat yesterday. We discovered a nice Robin’s nest right outside the living room window. It’s situated in a Burning Bush and has three little baby Robins sitting in it waiting for their food.
I would say my camera equipment came in very handy yesterday. The minute I saw my National Geographic moment, I ran upstairs to get my stuff. I recently purchased a nice Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens and a SMDV Remote Shutter Release Cable just for occasions like this. Since I was all the way zoomed in, I am really happy I had that shutter release cable.
I took a whole bunch of pictures of the baby Robins in the nest and got a few of the mother feeding them. I deleted a few, but decided to post the majority of what I had. Also, I got some sweet video. It was pure magic – I’m telling you.
Camera equipment used:
– Canon T3i DSLR
– SLIK PRO 700DX Professional Tripod with Panhead
– Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens
– SMDV Remote Shutter Release Cable
FYI – I had the camera set up about ten feet away from the nest and was shooting through the window.
