Sunday was an improvement on yesterday with a hint of brighter weather in the afternoon which tempted us out into the garden and greenhouse.
I’ve always found that the most difficult garden bird to get a photograph of is a wren. It’s so difficult in fact I haven’t managed to get a picture of one until today. It’s so small and moves about so quickly it’s almost like trying to photograph a mouse. Most often I see one on the back fence a little out of camera distance in any case. Usually as soon as I spot one in the garden by the time I’ve reached for my camera it’s disappeared. Today luck was on my side. I managed to grab my video camera and just managed to get focused on a wren before it and its mate disappeared into the bushes.
I managed to get a couple of still images off just a few seconds of video. Most of the footage was just a blur of wren. These were the best two pictures I managed to get.
I've posted the few seconds of video on YouTube which can be viewed by clicking here.
