I have no excuses for the amount of noise in this set of images, suffice to say, it was a very, very overcast day with plenty of showers and dark under the shade of trees. I upped the ISO to 800 and switched off the flash, not to scare the birds away, and at the full 500mm with F5 the largest I could set to.
I was absolutely enthralled to see one of these and wanted to a get a pic, whatever it turned out like, so here are the results, good or bad.
Thanks for the C&C's on my Robin. I will try and play catch as soon as I can, but working all weekend so I might be a little slow in getting around to you.
Have a great weekend everyone and lets hope the sun shines.
