early bird

By gwynn56  
not up on types of birds , but thought I'd have a go at taking a few shots this morning , this I took down in local park , by the stream that goes through it , had no joy in finding a kingfisher though , wasn't that easy capturing these small birds , often I'd just nicely get focused and somebody's dog would bark or make a noise scaring them off , quite a few dog owners exercise their dogs early in the park unfortunately , I obviously need more practice as this looks slightly out of focus

Not bad at all for a beginner in this field.
I've had difficulty getting the images I want of our garden birds.
Tricky balance of light and timing.

As you say they are not easy to capture, but you did well with this one

A great effort, Gwynn - our feathered friends are not easy to catch on camera!
Thanks goodness for digital cameras, eh?
