Spring, Texas

D800, 85mm, ISO 320, f8, 1/200, multi flash

Here's one from 5 years ago I did in my back yard using the same multi-flash setup as i do for Hummingbirds. I made an extra large background and used a small feeder to predict the focus and placement of the capture area. This image is of the bird leaving the feeder.

The result of your efforts is amazing. Good prep of background - seeming like blurred forest or bushes.
