Get off, they're mine!

By simon9924
One of a few quickly grabbed shots before heading off to work yesterday. Conditions were far from ideal - grey and misty, but it's the first time I've managed to catch a blue tit in flight. Shot through my kitchen window as per the previous photos.

More luck than patience Smile

I'm hoping for some nicer conditions over the weekend, grey and misty isn't ideal for high speed shots.

Good timing Simon. A bit of selective post processing should bring out a fair bit more detail.

(I see you've upgraded your kit - the bug has obviously bitten again Smile

Thanks Greg, Brian.

I like new toys hence the camera upgrade Smile
I've just tried out a trial copy of noiseware on the above pic, that cleans it up quite a bit. I also need to clean my window again!

Have been playing with photoshop, I think THIS is an improvement on the original image.
