How to Shoot the Twitter Bird
Oct 30, 09 - Michelle


Indigo Bunting

Is this the best photo of the Twitter bird or what?!?!

My husband’s photo of an Indigo Bunting just won second place in the National Wildlife Federation 2009 photo contest in the bird behavior category.

His name is Brian Tang and this is his website: www.hardrain1.com/

He bought his expensive lens on Amazon and I’d recommend Amazon over eBay also. It’s a $4-5K item and Amazon had the best price.

Here’s his equipment list:
