LTT in the Snow

By brian1208
It was snowing but still the LTTs came to feed (we had Robin and what I think was a Chiffchaff too)

It was much too dark to make it worth trying for a natural light shot so I popped the flash gun on the camera, set it to manual mode, got the angle right to cut down "flash-back" from the kitchen window and started shooting.

This one I loved because it set the mood, cold and dark with falling snow.

Hope you like it too and any comments on the technique would be welcomed
