Beautiful capture Yves.. I love how the chickadee in the focal point stands out so crisply against the muted foreground and background.. great work on this one!

Yves Langlois

Thank you very much Heather. I did not managed , but seeing it made me realise how short is the DOF.

Harold Fleming

Excellent shot, Yves! Jenny is right, great Depth Of Field.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Harold. I often shoot at close range with the 400. I was awared of the short DOF. but that short really surprises me.

Debra Plett

Good shooting Yves. I like how the foreground and background are faded and just the area that the chick-a-dee fills is in focus. Nice lighting on the little guy as well.

Yves Langlois

Thank you very much Debra.

Jenny Stevens

Hi Yves. I love the glint in his eye. Great DOF.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Jenny. What is DOF?

Here is an opportunity to realise how short is the depth of field with a 400mm focal length at close range. Even at F9 aperture (ISO 800 ), tweety bird just fit the depth of field. Any bigger bird would have not.
