How I Got the Shot

On March 5, 2017 I was driving on the Sawbill Trail in No. Minn. when I saw a flock of birds in the gravel on the side of the road. I pulled over to the side and stopped. I saw that they were Pine grosbeaks, birds that I don't see where I live in St. Paul, MN. I wanted to get a shot, but I didn't want to set up on a tripod or stand looking down on them. I sat down on the ground, used the front of my car as a back support, put my Canon 600mm f.4 lens between my knees and just sat and watched the birds. They started coming very close to me, as if they didn't know I was there. I got some good shots. At times there were so close, I couldn't even focus. Happy.
