This little Robin was mooching food and posed for a series of shots. I got closer and closer until I thought I would try to spook it and get a shot of it flying off. This is the result. I was particularly pleased with the result as I had just changed to my kit lens for some landscape shots when he flew in. So it was not my usual "birding" lens,

Great shot. Got a similar shot with my Ixus ages ago (although my bird looks tiny). Love to try and re-capture it with my 300D, but don't expect to get the chance. At least I know how it can look now!

Thanks both, I forgot to say, as this was shot in overcast woodland I had to use the onboard flash - it worked well here.

This is fantastic Brian. The timimg is perfect. Do digital cameras have an "autowind" feature (for want of a better word) or did you time your shot?

Really great - and doesn't it just show how there's not necessarily a "right" lens for situations.
Just being there to get the shot is more important.
Well done.

Alan, you can use a digital in many ways but the "cycle time" depends on the size of the buffer memory, shutter speed and data transfer rate among other things. In this case I was firing single shot rather than continuous. As I was using flash in P mode I was firing at 1/60th sec and I guess I was taking one shot / step / sec (roughly). I got around 6 shots off before Robin took flight, so I claim a "timed" shot in this case! :0)

Many thanks David, Alan & kyd, I do appreciate your taking time to comment,

Brian

Congrats Brian, I normally skip over Robin pictures, but this ones a bit special. I could not help notice that its sharp all over except the tail, which must have been moving somewhat faster than the wings. I will have to look out for this with my local Robin.

I can't thank you all individually as there are so many comments - but I do appreciate each and every response.

Paul, I hadn't spotted that but think I may know why. On one shot I have of a seagull taking off I noticed that just as they take off there is a powerful downward thrust of the tail feathers. It shows very clearly when they are on the water as a circular hole appears. I think that is what we are seeing here.

Hi Brian - just saw your comments on my ballet-dancing Robin and had to check this one out and yes, it is a beaut too ! We used the same technique incidentally, except I was 'lucky' enough to have the 200mm hanging off the end so it was a wee bit easier to catch the 'spook' thrown by my good wife !

Thanks David - the dark background is from the fact that this was shot in shaded woodland, which necessitated fill-in flash, which made the background even darker. It was then a balance between the bird detail and backgound exposure - you can see what won Smile

Brian,
I've just been browsing through all your excellent work and noticed this beauty had been selected for the editors award.

Rather than click every picture I like, which is the majority, I've clicked this brilliant example to cover all your pictures.

Regards Simon

Simon - thanks from Robin & me Smile I've been trying to reduce the size of my portfolio but am finding it difficult. Most of the shots represent hard work and remind me of the learning process involved. I'm glad you liked this one though, he is one of my favourites (and not just for the EC)

Thanks for your comments. Will try and get some better shots. This shot of yours (the Robin) is absolutely fantastic. My initial reaction was WOW. If this is what you can do with the EOS300D, i will seriously be saving up for this camera.
