Getting close to the feeder for photos when you dont have a Zoom lens
I sold my zoom during the summer. I wanted a L series wide angle lens and my zoom did not have IS (stability) built into it, so I sold it and am saving up for a better lens.... So I wanted to photograph the birds in my feeder and the longest lens I have right now is a Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro..... I set up my tripod and camera near the feeder and draped a coat over my head.... it worked perfectly.... I even had a couple of Goldfinches land on me.... I will move closer next time.... here is one of my photos from today.
