Watch the birdy II ….

Hadeda Ibis on neighbour’s roof.



This and the previous shot of the Swallow were taken with a Sony Cyber Shot: a gift left to us by my brother in law when he visited last year. He never used it, he said, so he bequeathed it. Bless him!

I do not yet have a telephoto for the Canon I normally use, and for me, the Sony is not easy to get used to, having a viewfinder /screen rather than viewing the image directly through the lens. Things get a bit ”wobbly”.

However, it seems with a bit of practice I might be able to take a few half decent shots using the zoom facility, which is really very good! And this shot was not even on full zoom.

  1. When I get round to it I have several ‘macro’ shots of a butterfluff taken from about ten feet away this morning. And a vacant leaf that was vacated by a bee while I was still focussing—he left just as I triggered.
