Day 122 – Blue Bird


After much time spent waiting patiently for this little Blue Tit to be still long enough for me to a shot that is not blurred I have concluded that birds, especially smalls ones, are tricky little buggers to photograph well. They seem to have absolutely no concept of the importance of holding still for just a few fleeting moments. Got him in the end though…..

Blue tit

“Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch
Who watches over you
Make a little birdhouse in your soul
Not to put too fine a point on it
Say I’m the only bee in your bonnet
Make a little birdhouse in your soul”

  2. Hi Molly, thanks for visiting! Your bird is so sharp. You must have been very patient.

      LOL… would sparkly high heels do the trick do you think?

        I used a 75mm – 300mm and I had it set to the 3oomm and on the tripod by the window near where I sit to work and I waited…. and waited…. and waited!


  3. This is a fabulous shot! I need to try to be more patient!
