Northern Cardinal Fledgling

By | June 12, 2019

Back in June 2017 I photographed a Northern Cardinal Fledgling resting on the edge of a bird bath that I have in my yard. I had emptied the bird bath so that I could clean it. When I came back with a brush the Cardinal was on the edge of the bird bath. The parents and another Fledgling were nearby, so I photographed this one and waited for it to leave.

How I Got The Shot – Northern Cardinal Fledgling

I was hand-holding a Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with a Canon EF 100 – 400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens. I was shooting in aperture priority mode (AV) with a shutter speed of 1/320 of a second at f8 and the ISO at 1000. White Balance on auto. I was using single point, continuous autofocus with evaluative metering.
