A beautiful day capped off with some fantastic views of bullfinches feeding on the cherry blossom in our garden. This was the first time I have had the chance to try out my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens for shooting birds, and while the targets were a bit far away, the sheer quality of this lens means it is possible to zoom in and crop the image and still get a half decent image. Below is what the full size image looked like.
