Scarlet Tanagers

The Scarlet Tanager below, taken in Rock Cut State Park in Northern Illinois on 5-17-09 with a SONY DSC-H7. He just sat there posing for me.

Below, one year later in the same park with a new Canon Rebel T1i, I zoomed in on this Scarlet Tanager from quite a distance and was pleasantly surprised that I managed a relatively clear photo.

These photos are gorgeous! You have a lot of patience, to wait for these guys to sit still.

Jon, your photos are terrific! I'm impressed with the variety of birds you've seen there.
