reed warbler

By pluckyfilly
I went out alone yesterday and it was almost lovely after that rain of the previous day, I was able to fiddle with controls on the camera and reminded myself of a thing or two "tripod as well" woohoo! initially my exp was all wrong and I could NOT understand where I was going wrong or why but eventually realised I had been playing in the garden with the settings and I was set on manual just in time to get this great shot - well I think it is and defy anybody to say otherwise heheh! thanks for all c/c's on yesterdays images, not everybodies cup of tea but I had thought it worth showing you (win some lose some) dull start to our day here but hopefully it will brighten up - special thanks to Ron (Maiwand for giving me the nod on where to find this little beauty)

Such a difficult bird to get and patience paid off here. In the open in a thick reed bed and detailed very well and also exposed nicely. Your best for ages by far

I agree Ann, you've got to give things a try...some people like them, some don't, you can't please everybody!
Quote:one of your best shots
I must agree, this is superb, such cracking detail and clarity. Just a shame about the bit reed in front of it Sad, but that's a minor niggle, the image is a real cracker, Ann, so it gets an award from me.
