A Bright Day
Unbelievably the suns been shining ! i packed the flash back into its case and setup with my 300 lens , i wanted to capture some in flight shots and this was the right day for it. at about 2 pm the sun is starting to get a bit lower in the sky , giving a good light for this attempt , but by 3 pm it dips behind Machen mountain and thats the end of that !!
The Greenfinches were happy to oblige, feeding on a regular basis, later on a bunch of Long tailed Tits descended to feed before roosting .
These were all taken with manual focus hoping the birds would come in on the right flight line, i found it easier to anticipate the shot holding a remote shutter release and keeping both eyes open.
