A week ago I was experimenting with a remote setup using Olympus Studio software to try and photograph birds that visit our backyard.
I placed a small piece of turf I dug from the yard on top of the deck railing in an area that gave a somewhat pleasing background and placed a handful of bird seed in the center of the grass. I then set my E-3 with a ZD 40-150mm lens on a tripod about six feet from the subject. Using a laptop within the house connected to the camera with a 15 foot USB cord, I remotely controlled exposures. The above image was the best result out of approximately 100 images.
