Goldcrest

I often see fleeting glimpses of these little birds in the local woods so had my camera with me today; unfortunately this one was in the darkest part of the wood with the brightest light behind it. ISO 2500 including some + exposure compensation and a considerable crop, but I still quite like it!



No where near as good as Ron's shot from a couple of weeks back though - I will just have to keep trying.

Re: Goldcrest

Its a fine shot Iain; don't do yourself down. I missed the woodpecker today but against a grey dark sky the shot would not have amounted to much.

Re: Goldcrest

Well done Iain. They are tricky little blighters, always on the move and, as you say, usually in the most inaccessible places. I like the pose of this one. A good shot.

Re: Goldcrest

We sleep with the bedroom window wide open and often get robins and bluetits coming in. They quickly find their way out. Earlier this year we had a goldcrest 'visitor' but it kept flying up to the ceiling, rather than out of the window. I eventually had to catch it when it settled, and release it.

Re: Goldcrest

Nice image Iain.

They're not easy to photograph as they like dark spots and move quickly, you did well to get this one.
