I was testing my new Canon 70-300 lens and spotted this Robin Red Breast standing in a patch of sunlight on a tree stump. I took 2 shots, in the first you couldn’t see his head but this was the second.
I was very happy with the shot as the feather lines and detail were very clearly visible plus I like the fact that the background, which was out of sunlight, is very dim and therefore is not too distracting.
This photo is also on my 500px account and you might get a larger / more detailed version there.
I am very happy with the Canon 70-300 and will be posting some details about the lens in the coming weeks.
