Magic Baby Sparrow.


As many of you know I`ve been faffing about with my camera settings. I managed to take this sequence of pictures this afternoon with the latest settings. I think these are the best so far.

It`s Wet.


Look Mom – I`m a baby chicken.

Shake it all about.


I`m a Sparrow.

I enjoyed taking these – I know not perfect but considering the bird was moving I think I didn`t do too bad.

Excellent improvement. You seem to have spot focus good, the right exposure just watch your depth of field (f-number) Look at first and last - sharp bird - the others are not - a larger f number would have helped you. Also make sure the focus is on the bird not the chair or wall.

Hi Alan,
I`ll have to pass on what settings I am using. I just sat there twiddling my buttons and pushing buttons. I took pictures and checked how they came out.

I`ll look up f number over the weekend Mike.
I think I find it easier to focus on the larger items than the birds. I`ll try to remember that on the next photos I take.

Thank you for your kind comments.

Great pics of the fledgling sparrow, Saucy, even though he is wet. :-)
