Peanuts... for me?

Hi all.

Here is my first attempt at photographing my clients at the feeder coming to land. I use a canon 1D2 (ISO 800), 28-135mm lens, a tripod and a remote. I attached a little bowl of peanuts to a stick and taped it to the tripod. Then I aligned the camera so that it was pointing a bit over the bowl. Then put the tripod near the feeder, moved away and waited....

 

I wanted to photograph something different near the feeder. I need to do a lot of refining on the method but I am happy with the first results. The background is far from good however

 

p.s. I suggest viewing this one at the largest size.
