I am fascinated by the birds that frequent our garden and fortunate to be able to photograph them through the windows of our home. In the beginning the main challenge was getting the camera to focus on the subject rather than the leaves. Since then I have learnt several things
1. To get shots with a less distracting background
2. The importance of the birds eye being clear in the image
3. To value of a bigger lens
4. Knowing their calls so I can jump up from my desk and be ready for shot.
I still have a long way to go. One thing I know is that birds doing things make more interesting photos than still shots. I am going to work on that.
