    Hazel, Those photos give a good idea of how very active they are--actual action shots!

    Kind regards,

  • When I got some Bearded Tits earlier on, I had several attempts to catch one in flight, too ... none of them made the cut, either.

      Many thanks Hazel. And adorable shots of the Beardies you got! Here`s another bad shot of a lovely bird: A female Blackcap- because the males do most of the singing the females often go unseen. This was my only capture of a female Blackcap in 2019.

  • Another female beardie in blurry flight mode  !

    and a Cetti's Warbler hiding !

    then fleeing …..

    Especially the last two flying Beardies are quite sharp and very pretty!I see the female even seems to be banded.
  • I've a couple to add here, from a recent trip to N Wales....

    Damned branches trying to photobomb!

    Errr, can you slow down a bit please, I missed that one!

    Oi!

    At least face the camera when I taking your photo....

  • I dropped the fishing rod and grabbed the camera for this sea eagle carrying a gull back to its chick. 
    It was such a special sight that only a silhouette could do it justice.

  • Green turtle in the grass ?    no,  just a Green Woodpecker doing a turtle impression    lol

    Great captures of your not very co-operative models Mike. As any modern criminal the Squirrel trys to cover his identity while in action , of course :-)
