Seems like the mod's killed the first attempt at my title choice.

However I'm quite pleased with yesterday's attempt at photographing a couple of tits. I have entered a photo competition with Martin Mere photo comp but this image is not allowed as it was not taken there. And some of the images are far superior to my offering of three images

Care to share your images of birds take this year?

Been quite good this year, though I'm not claiming anything special.


Swan, Incoming! Right place, right time, though to be fair I have been trying to get a shot of a swan coming towards the canoe for a few years:

Red kite, Oxfordshire downs

Sadly, low light and quite grainy, but its taken me years to get close enough to a kingfisher to get a half decent shot

I confess that some were last year as well, including the Great Northern Diver, a bird I've long wanted to see since reading Arthur Ransome.

I'm not really a bird man, but I got this buzzard from above up at Sandwood Bay:

a butterfly is a "summerbird" in Danish so does this count ?

spend quite some time out looking for the Eagles when i was last in Denmark.
The south west coast of Jutland is amazing for watching birds

and then finally after some days caught the Eagle close enough to get some pictures

I like DSCF6977c
In reply to balmybaldwin:

Thank you. Photographing Arctic terns in flight has been most frustrating. I have several hundred slightly out of focus pictures of them...

My way of taking shots of those have been going to Farne Island, hold camera over head while keeping the shutter pressed down, and take shots as they attack you
