My bird photography is going through a bad patch at the moment.
My sightings are just not conducive to good photography.
Do you get those times when nothing is quite right. You see birds, but they are never in the right position to shoot or never there long enough to shoot. When they are, twigs or branches are in the way.
Here are some of the failings of recent times.
About the best of a bad bunch is this Whitethroat, high up and a bad angle.
This female Blackcap was rather shy……...
……...as was this one
This Chiffchaff was too far away to be able to crop the shot sufficiently.
This Willow Warbler was again a long way from my position and not in the open enough.
This Wren was too far away and as I moved forward it was gone.
This Wren was in the shade momentarily before dissapearing.
Again another distant short-lived Wren.
This Nuthatch was way up in a tall tree.
This below was a real disappointment.
My first and extremely brief sighting of a Lesser Whitethroat and it was gone in a flash.
Not enough time to re-focus the camera.
Hopefully things will get better, they can't get much worse.
