Still trying to get to grips with the Sony, and a zoom lens! I keep forgetting the flexibility of the 200-600 available range. 

Ordinarily it sits at 600 and I can sometimes struggle to leave sufficient surround to frame the bird forgetting I can zoom out.

This time I did the opposite!

Trying to capture a young Dunnock flitting about the tree, I managed to get this shot which later required about a 25-50% crop. 

Then I realised I had the lens set at 300mm 🤬

It’s hard breaking the habits of a life time ….in this case prime lens v zoom flexibility.

Couldn’t help feeling sorry for this scruffy Bluetit.

Going in and out of its nest hole to feed its brood has taken a toll on its appearance…

I don’t really know where all this bright light is coming from!  I had to get the iso down into 3 digits for a change.


Here’s another baby…..

Not sure we should be including ‘caged bird’ photos, but anyway here’s my version. 😀

That’s enough…back to weeding the garden. 😞
