From the Garden

21 Feb

I’ve been trying to get a decent sharp Blue Tit shot for months now, the light hasn’t been too good and with an ideal aperture of F8 the shutter speed simply hasn’t been fast enough to get a crisp pic of these erratic birds, so I guess this is as good as they get for now!……

This was a shot in the dark!…. almost literally!…… at the end of the day, the sun real low as you can see from the shade, but this Blackbird was in profile with just the beak and eye in the sun light!……..

Not quite in the garden, but above it for sure!…….. 🙂

Definitely not in the garden but the Police EC135 Helicopter was around today…. who is watching who?….:)

    So what camera and lenses are you using for your shots…I really like them.

    Hi, Thanks for your comment……

    The camera is a Nikon D300 and most wildlife pics on here are taken with a Sigma 150-500 lens.
