A Mini Photography Expedition

I had a sort of greatly compressed day today where I got a lot done in a fairly short space of time - shopping, library visit, intense exercise bike ride, cooking - and still fitted in a sort of accidental photography walk.

I realise I haven't really used my bridge camera too much in the last couple of years, finding my latest mobile phone far better for macro type insect and wildflower shots, as well as having really good on board editing software for all sorts of photograph. However, for bird pictures, only my bridge camera will do the job I need.

I'm just not very good at using it.

So deciding that I needed to practice, I just went out into  my garden to try and photograph some songbirds. Of course, having been plentiful earlier on they all disappeared, and I ended up walking through the cemetery to the lake to try and get some shots.

I  got a few, and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with my singing robin - not a bad shot for 36X and my jelly hands!

  1. You got on better than I did with my bridge camera. I deffed it in. Way too complicated. I now have a Lumix with a Leica lens. Point and shoot. Ace. Great photos, Tufted Ducks? Never seen one but they are around.

  2. I love these photos! Especially the robin, singing, but really all of them.

  3. The light in the robin pictures is a work of art. The first I can hear him singing!

  4. Lovely photos - certainly a lot better than I managed when I borrowed my brother's bridge camera!

  5. I'm so thrilled to read your comments. I went late afternoon figuring this would be the best light to catch birds in the trees, so I'm pleased

  6. Cracking set of piccies, Si.
