Finch Fan by TerribleTer Finch Fan by TerribleTer
This House Finch is a frequent visitor to my bird feeder. I had to shoot him at 1/4000 of a second to freeze him in flight, and he looks as if he were on parade.

I have eight finches in a 6x3x2 cage next to my patio doors, and when the sun is at the correct angle I would swear I see this kind of image. Thanks for capturing it.

Here's a surprise one. The flash created an unintended double exposure, but it was kind of cool.
