Re: Wildlife Photography (and all its difficulties…)

These look quite good to me, viewing the full size images in the gallery.

Olympus digital cameras have never been too hot on CAF for BIF. However much also depends on technique, a bit of knowledge of the way birds behave and a lot of practice. Some of us, like me, have never managed any great success with BIF whilst others obviously have the neccessary skill and persistence to succeed. You're right about Robins,I've got lots of pictures of them.

These were taken with the E-3 which is a DSLR not mirrorless.
