Good morning folks,
A Coal Tit again today. Not had much chance to get down to the wood, the weather here is
awful. Very poor light and very wet. Hoping for a break in the monsoon Friday.
This image is from Tuesday when I managed to get a couple of hours between the rain.
Light was terrible and the birds thin on the ground but the "Coalies" still performed.
I was delighted with the response to the Robin image, a big thank you to all.
Colin

conditions must have been truly grim given your settings! i wonder whether a touch of negative exposure compensation would have benefit in terms of controlling the whites and of course offering that additional shutter speed?

Great unusual shot of a CT. (A little Tree Creeperish sitting on his tail like that ).

Not bad at all Colin, considering the conditions you were having to shoot in

Perhaps a third down on the exposure, would have held the cheeks better

Think I would just have to agree with this comment Colin. Still a fine shot however.
