May is also a great time for birding on Long Island. The trees are green but not so dense as to interfere with the shots. Birds are also very active and bright for mating season. All you have to do is follow the calls.
This time of year was made for the Canon 7D and the Sigma 50-500mm lens. It’s a fantastic combination. Just look at these pictures.
All photos taken with the Canon 7D and Sigma 50-500mm lens.
