Well it's been a while since my last Blog, not because I have not been bothered but because November and December had me very busy indeed resulting in around 10.000 images and hours upon hours of footage to go through, well I am mostly up to date now and today had a nice few hours with my wife Bird watching in the garden.
Above are a few of the shots I took using a Canon 6d and a 28-300 mm L series lens, now believe it or not 300 mm is just not enough length for this type of photography unless you can get pretty close and we decided as it was freezing cold to sit in the patio door just inside so the resulting images are not bad considering.
My favorite shots are the ones where the birds are in motion, most of these were shot at around 1/1800 -2000 second as a shutter speed so it just shows how fast these guys move.
In fact I enjoyed this so much, though I think in the summer, when its warm and I am in a tee shirt with a cold drink it's probably more my preferred environment, I will get something 500 mm or longer to have another go.
This is the thing about photography, there is always another area to discover.
Thanks for reading.
