Wheatear in Evening Sun

Yesterday afternoon I went to see if there were still any Wheatears on Lowestoft North Denes or if they had moved on. I eventually found two of them apparently enjoying the late sunshine. By gradually edging forwards I was able to get surprisingly close to one of them and managed to get some frame filling shots.

E-M1 and 75-300 II.

Re: Wheatear in Evening Sun

Many thanks for the kind comments. The photos were definitely helped by the fact that I could get close to the birds. Prior to taking these shots I had spent a couple of hours trying to photograph the six Whinchats which were present on the denes. The birds were extremely nervous and flighty and there was no cover for me to hide behind. The two images attached show the closest shot which I got all afternoon and a hefty crop of that image. Unfortunately here is no substitute for getting close to the subject.
