Eastern Yellow Robin.
Trying a slightly new technique this weekend, an on-camera fill flash, to give better light in the shadows, without overdoing it. When it works, it works well. The biggest downside is the birds are put off by the flash going off. Oh well....
Nice job with the flash. It's not to much and fill the shadow. Well done.
Thanks Click. Using fill flash with birding is new for me (I've seen it done, but it often looks over cooked IMHO).
The little blighter moved his head, just as the pic was taken, so, its ever so slightly blurred (the body is tack sharp). I suspect it was pre-flash going off, before the main flash kicked in. And considering the shutter speed was 1/60th
I think it looks balanced, partly because the background light was more like 1/1000sec and the foreground was 1/60sec. Oh well, things to learn, things to try
