Grey Day in the woods

Another grey day in December. Visited our bird feedings in the woods, no beautiful lights but here are some samples.

There was a lack if light, shutter speeds were about 1/100 – 1/200 seconds with full aperture, ISOs from 4000 to 6400. I shoot bird photos usually with shutter priority program with continuous AF and auto-ISO maximum value of ISO 6400. Those shutter speeds mean that these are really still pics, no action. 🙂

Gear: Olympus E-M1X and M.Zuiko 40-150 2.8 Pro.
