Common Whitethroats

Busy Common Whitethroats on Lowestoft North Denes recently. On an otherwise totally bird-free day one small bush was bustling with Whitethroats, Greenfinches and House Sparrows. Very odd.

E-M1 II, 300mm f4 and MC-14.

Re: Common Whitethroats

Very nice indeed. You nailed the focus with a very difficult background in 2,3 and 4.

That would have been all but impossible before Olympus re-introduced the small single AF point in the original firmware update. Provided I can get the AF point on the subject it works really well now but that is easier said than done while hand-holding 420mm of lens, especially if it is windy.
