We have a new wireless shutter release with which we are dabbling. We took some shots of some of our 'backyard Democrats' this morning. As you can see, the angle wasn't optimum; we're shooting almost directly into the sun from under a cottonwood. Our shutterspeed was really too low; our ISO was at 800; and the depth of field was as shallow as a politician's promise. So tomorrow, we're shifting the seed plate to where we'll have direct sunlight, and the camera will be between sun and birds. This should give us a much better set of parameters.
