Cullercoats Harbour 03 Feb 2014   It was a nice morning to take the camera out     John

A bit of a handfull !  

Time to resurrect this topic maybe.   A Wheatear, (migrating in for the summer) it was very close to where I parked for a walk yesterday and was still around when I got back, so I got the camera out

It was taking forever to get my reply up and so i moved on to something else --came back and thought it still hasn't uploaded so did it again.

 

I put it down to old age. LOL

my mind not only wanders-- sometimes it leaves completely.

And here's one taken from the Isle of Wight at a birds of prey display. Lots of shots of blurred birds (they won't fly by slowly ;) )

Rob you need a faster shutter speed to freeze birds, your 450D should be virtually noise free up to ISO800, which would have given you 1/2000th instead of 1/250th (@ISO100), f8 would knock that back down to 1/1000th but is likely to produce sharper pics than f5.6, (it does on my 350).

 

..........and if you think flying birds are tricky, wait 'til you try dragonflies! :o

I don't want to freeze them, that defeats the object. F8 was chosen because I wanted to try and keep as get a depth of field as possible, and still keep a fast shutter speed. Agreed with the ISO setting though, didn't think of that at the time (doh!)

I assumed from your comment "Lots of shots of blurred birds (they won't fly by slowly)" that you would have preferred not blurred birds, obviously I was wrong.

 

Exif data shows that one taken at f5.6 not f8.
