Cardinal in a Tree

The cardinal is one of the few birds which stays through the Canadian winter.  This cardinal has wintered well as you can see by his bright red feathers and plump round body.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D Mark II camera and a Sigma 150-600 mm lens set at 500 mm.  The shutter speed was set to 1/400 second, the aperture was set to f6.3 and the ISO was set to 160.

Osprey in Flight!

After a long summer of photographing a family of osprey on the banks of the Rideau River, I managed to capture this shot of an osprey soaring through the air with his wings spread wide and his piercing yellow eyes fixated on his target.  The osprey's beautiful colouring on his wings, head and body are highlighted in the bright blue sky.  This photography was taken with my Canon 7D camera and a 400 mm telephoto lens.  The aperture was set to f6.3 , ISO was set to 200 and the shutter speed was set at 1/1600 second to freeze the motion of the wings.
