The curse is lifted. I got my new 7D II a week ago and have been piling up what few bird photos I have gotten in the interim on my CF card, awaiting the release of LR 5.7. That happened this morning! So, here are a pair of evening grosbeaks from last week. I'm not sure I have ever seen this species on our property before, though I have seen them just down the road. Their numbers, apparently, are way down from years ago, so it is always a treat to see them. The surprising thing was that I was just training the new camera on the feeder, speculating as it were, when they flew in; I just about fell over! They did not stay for more than a couple minutes, unfortunately.
