I was using a tripod so it's not shake. The camera kept fixing on objects behind the bud. There's no alternative, I am going to have to take the cd out of its plastic wrapper and read the camera instructions.
I got so fed up I decided to name the robin Bud and focus on him instead. He often follows me round the garden. He sat in the weigela, turning his head from side to side watching me. I hadn't realised the adults retain speckles, or is he one of last years juves?
The blue tit is always fearless and kept noshing on the remains of a fat ball even though I was only a couple of feet away.
The blackbirds are usually shyer but this one landed on the bank and didn't realise I was standing beneath him until he looked up and met my eyes.
It's getting lighter in the mornings so we're not seeing such colourful sunrises but, to compensate, the evening skies have been beautiful.
Took some more shots of buds today just hand held and they looked better..... the boss approved anyway.
