I can't see then ever becoming dependent Dale,I'd have zillions all year if that was the case and it simply isn't The food is there all year and my lady doesn't let them run out often. they come when they want a hand along the road,and when pickings are good they go elsewhere and much on that. I used to be very concerned about all this Dale,but not so much anymore.. IIf ya think about it a sunflower heart is something a goldie probably couldn't access with out us removing the shell, it's about as natural as peanuts to blue tit I think they wan't their natural grub, and we are a long way from undoing that need
we just help them along tis all
Good to see ya posting and mending buddy,they change fast don't they,one min all rough looking the next bling, Beautiful birds,we are really lucky us humans they like the feeders so much and even more so as image makers,such a gorgeous photogenic subject
7d huh a bit of ettr and biingo,certainly looks that way Dale,always the caviat of what one sees on the web,looks great though mate !!
I do worry about it at times, maybe I shouldn't. You make valid points matey. My worry is that these are this year's brood and it's all they might come to know, then if something happens and I can't feed them (been reminded of that lately), then they are at a loss. I could 'train' er indoors to keep the feeders topped up I spose.
I liked the rough look they had as youngsters, maybe not the greatest for photography purposses but it yielded something different. I have to say though, they are approaching some magnificient condition at the moment and look great as subjects, hard to beat a prime goldie.
The 7D, yeah, I gave it a try on Sunday. I do think I could've exposed even more to the right as I still had to do some noise reduction, especially on the background but in fairness, I was at ISO 1000 for this last image, something I wouldn't have contemplated until recently on a 7D. I do think it would make a great hide camera if I could totally master it and also save the clicks on my 5D. The 7D actually has a faster frame rate than my 5D.
