  • Common Whitethroats

    By mid May the bulk of the migrants have settled, among them Common Whitethroats, which I have been fairly successfulthis season in locating and capturing on camera. Sharing some photos that turned out OK, three individuals (all male, I suppose the females are lying on eggs) that I found in an area with suitable habitat.

            That last one framed by the lupins is tremendous.

              Thank you for kind feedback. Everything seemed to converge when I took the last picture; light was good, there was a nice background that qualified for a picture on its own and as I waited he moved from a semi-obstructed position and landed right among the flowers with free line of sight, just long enough for me to re-aim and re-focus!
