Birds on stumps

I set a number of my game cameras next to stumps for whatever animal might want to land or climb upon to rest. It was a suprise to me how many different animals used the stumps to get a better view while searching for food. The trick is to set the camera at a distance from the stump to hide from view, close enough for a quality photo but still able to get the entire animal into the picture.
Then you want a good background, one that includes a sky line for evening photos but not looking into the sun.

I also set the camera level with or just below the top of the stump and aimed upward to give the skyline and enough to get the entire bird or animal in the photo.

Very good picture! Used a flash? The bird didn't get alarmed by the flash?
