Birds are a great challenge because they dart around so quickly. I'm learning that to get a good bird shot, I need to practice hand stabilization...and to use anything nearby as a support when a tripod isn't readily available.
Here are a few I snapped recently. These are some of funner images. What do you think?
|Blackbird on his tippy toes to get the apply goodness|
|Blackbird caught swallowing|
|Blackbird tongue, licking the apple from his beak|
|Blackbird looking pleased with himself at his sweet treat|
|Baby Wagtail, having a rest on the top of stone wall|
|Baby Wagtail -- "What's down there?"|
|Adult male wagtail came down to feed his baby|
|Jackdaw -- "You thought you could keep me out!"|
