Hi, Everyone.
Today I have become a full member of EPZ.
Thank you all who voted on my beautiful Robin, I love him and I think it will be a long time before I will do anything better.
Another bird today also from my visit to Dunham Massey.
This is my first attempt at anything moving, not the sharpest of images I know but I was well pleased with it.
I took about about 40 shots and only got a couple that were any good, this was the best one.
All comments are always very much appreciated.
Vee.

Well captured, good pose ! unfortunatly the underbelly and tail feathers are just a tad overexposed.

Welcome to ep2, the large and variations options are well worth having and being able to see who voted for your shot but didnt comment is handy.

What a great in flight capture - plenty of movement and detail here - it is one of the most difficult things to capture successfully.
