Rainbow Bird ...

By SocksAndStuff
A beautiful failure whilst trying to capture tiny birds flying in the treetops in not enough light, handheld, with too long a lens, what joy! The low sun is bright in the background and just caught the wings and feet in an otherwise shadowed flight shot. I think the bird is a Goldcrest although there were various other little birds flying about too. It was always an impossible shot, but they were such little teases and I had to try and catch an image of them. Hope someone else enjoys seeing this as much as I did trying to capture it. Quite a beautiful failure don't you think? Smile

Serendipity can often beat perspicacity. Great shot.
