    Default A Morning of Little Birdies

    Aside from practicing some HDR photography this am I also took some time to annoy some little birds that were around. I couldn't get as close as I'd like seeing as they were very small birds ... you could stuff at least 6 of those Fairywrens in your mouth before you needed to swallow!!

    Red backed Fairywren


    Superb Fairywren

    Who would swallow such cute birdies? You did again some nice shots, Steve. I love especially the Red backed Fairywren - wonderful bird! We have nothing similar here *sniff*.

    Number 4 is adorable. Once again, I just want to pat its tiny little head.

    I loved all these pictures, know why? Because it is not too closeup, it tells a story, birds are looking somewhere and theres a field space where we can wonder what he is looking at. Also colours are good, and pretty sharp

    I had wanted to get in closer because I like to get shots with lots of detail as well but in these cases I wasn't able so I concentrated more on the compositional elements. Glad you like.
