Alun,
Glad you were able to get out and enjoy the day. I really like the way the bird was captured in song in the first photo and I also like the fourth photo of the ducks.

Really good images, Alun! The first being top-notch.

Good Shots, Alun-

I especially liked the Blue Heron shot. Did you use fill flash, by any chance?

Have a great weekend.

Many thanks all
I actually messed up the first image of the robin that i re sized and i uploaded the wrong one, the original one i have is much better quality. One of the best photo's i have taken so far.

Gary, i had a quick look at your photo album site, you have some great images up there, so a comment like that means a lot to me - thanks

Joyce, no flash - i took a lot of pics of the heron but the front of the bird is white and it looked like the highlights were blown so as i got closer i started spot metering areas of grass near the bird, both light and dark and then moving back into frame, most of this these came out good.

The first photo is very good, particularly the angle you got of the bird facing you and opening its mouth. Why don't you post the other better picture you have?

I had i bit of difficulty cropping the picture of the Robin, just could not seem to get it right, so here i think is the better one, and guess what? I caught this blackbird in the exact same place, along with the Heron and a monster Trout coming to up to see what all the fuss was about!
