    I was out taking a picture of this:

    And the birds were being very friendly. I noticed this fellow about to fly up, so I prefocused on the bird feeder and waited for him to take flight. You can see it gets more in focus as you progress.

    I was wondering what a BIF was. ;)
    Birds get brave when they're hungry and pay less attention to us.

    I've got a couple of birds out there that let us get really close.

    I would think you'd have more luck moving the feeder out of the corner, if possible. It limits their escape routes.
    Nice shots.

    Unfortunately it is not the most stable of feeders, being in the corner works the best.
