for the horrid quality of this photo. It was the wrong time of day for photographing through my window because of the glare, but I still gave it a try. There were eight Mourning Doves on the feeder as I was backing across the room to fit them all in with the 400 lens. Missed that shot, but I took this one as one Dove was sliding down the roof. Odd, but I still kind of like it!

LOL no need for apologies. Bet that was funny to see it sliding down.I learned when shooting through glass get right up against it to prevent any reflection from showing up,(but I am sure you already knew that )That second one is very nice.They are pretty birds and i enjoy getting shots of them in Spring


A little L goes a long way.

I have learned that lesson as well when I tried Auto ISO. Won't be doing that again!

Thanks. I can actually see the shapes of the window glare in the first shot, and the wet spots on the outside of the window from the snow hitting the glass.

Thanks, it is fun watching them slide down the roof. They do it quite often.

I have better luck changing my angle to the glass, than getting right up close to it. Plus there's very little glare early in the day. My feeders and perches are only a few feet from the window, so I have to be back quite a ways when using the 400. Even the 70-200 I usually have on a tripod so I still have to be back at least two feet to allow for the legs of the tripod.

WTG! I did the same thing yesterday through glass, only mine was aimed at the Band Tailed Pigeon who landed in my feeder as soon as it was anchored in place on the trellis!


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.
