Amazing to see this Western Tanager yesterday at a friends' feeder here on the Bruce Peninsula. A western species, they rarely show up this far east. This bird was likely blown off course during migration, due to high winds a few days ago. The bird geek in me was excited just to see it, but I couldn't resist hanging out to get a few photos. I shot the photo with a Canon 1D mk IV, 500/4 IS lens and 1.4x tele-converter.

Ever since being awestruck by Jim Brandenburg's famous photo of a wolf peeking from behind a tree, I always get excited by opportunities to capture this style of photo.
