Ready for Their Close-Ups

One of the best features of the Panasonic KX-HCM280 camera they’re using for the birdcam is its 21X optical zoom. There were a number of shots yesterday that showed off that feature to good advantage; here are my favorites.

First, from robin54, this isn’t such a terribly tight close-up of the Steller’s Jay, but it’s such a beautiful shot I had to include it:

Then there was this great shot of the male American Robin by noho_bird_club:

And this totally cute shot of the Pygmy Nuthatch by lin:

But the prize for Best Close-Ups has to go to kryptonkay, who got these three amazing shots of the Anna’s Hummingbird:

I can’t even imagine how much luck and/or patience must have gone into getting those. Awesome!

    your so right when you say Luck. I’ve noticed that theres a delay and the shot that you take isn’t always the one you get. So I really took another shot but got him flying away instead. I’ve looked at that plant since we started trying to get a close-up of a hummingbird. it made my day to finally get this shot.
