Siskin male

By Saastad
Another photo from the same photoshoot in the garden.
V1 is from the same shoot. But the v2 is from another day.
Bad light, so I had to use 6400 iso to get a fast enough shutter speed.
I like it a lot, but the quality is not so good that i will put it first. But I like the action in it!
Thanks a lot for the votes, comments and awards on my latest photo.
Much appreciated as always.
Wish you all a fine week.

Excellent motion in v2, all photos are very beautiful, Arne. In v2 the problem in my opinion is not so the 6400 ISO (especially for EOS 6D), as the shutter speed in combination with the long lens (Sigma, I suppose). Although for me it's a very beautiful theme, so it's a very beautiful photo!

Looks a lot like our goldfinches....when I have shot barn swallows....I use a very high shutter speed to stop them in flight.

Excellent set of bird images and V2 is in a class of its own.
Never seen so many in the one area so well captured. The slight movement in the birds I feel is acceptable as it is an action shot.

Thank you very much Ian! The last one is taken on a very grey day, just after a snow fall.
The light was bad, and i was standing on the balcony and tried to get a ok shot. I think it was somwhere between 50-100 of the in my little plum tree.SmileSmile
