The picture of this Rose-breasted Grosbeak was taken in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. I used my CANON EOS7D with my Canon 100-400 f4.5-5.6L IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens lens to make this capture. When taking pictures while walking around a large park such as Prospect Park, it is very convenient to use a zoom lens vs a fixed focus lens. The Canon 100-400 zoom lens allows me the versatility to get fairly close when necessary and have the benefit of the 400 mm for those small birds that are farther away. Coupled with the CANON EOS7D 1.6 crop factor, the Canon EF 100-400 lens covers me in many situations where I literally have seconds to get the shot of the bird.
