An apple a day, keeps the doctor away ;)

Still testing out the limits of the 1DX - it was extremely dark and windy - in fact it started raining while I was photographing robins enjoying ornamental crab apples. Shot at +1 comp, shutter speed priority 1/1250 which gave me an automatic ISO of 1600 and an aperture of 4.5.. Less DOF than I'd like but hey I can't complain about the performance of the 1DX. Even blown up to 100% there was very little visible noise. I have a few contacts that are thinking of purchasing this body (camera not mine - mine is way past it's prime - lol) so I thought I would post some low light images!! Now if only the robins leave some of the apples for a sunny day :))
