My latest efforts at closeup photographing of the birds in my garden. These photographs are still not perfect, but I’m discovering and learning new things about photography with my Digital SLR, now that it’s not in Automatic and I don’t have Auto-Focus either!

Goldfinches on Nyjer Feeder Photographs

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

These are the best photographs I’ve managed to shot at present. (click the photo’s to view). These were both taken with a rather old Canon EOS 300D Digital SLR and Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens. It’s not the camera which is the problem, it’s trying to catch the finches at the right moment!

 It’s very difficult to get close-up pictures, the feeders are at the bottom of the garden, I’ve tried sitting down at the bottom of the garden waiting, but I think I need a bird hide! (everytime I come into the house, the come back and feed on the feeder).
