|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I managed to get a good close up shot of this female blackbrd, whilst on holiday this year. |
I was taking pictures of rabbits, a young robin and a male blackbird in the garden of the property where I was staying. I looked in the hedge, and saw this blackbird standing still. I moved up closer, and she didn't move. The she grabbed a fly that had come close to her, and started to move away and I started clicking away with my camera.
Managed to get a sequence of about 20 pictures before she became photo shy and flew away.
Cropped some of the background.

I agree. It is a good closeup shot Daniel.
Nice detail and good lighting.
A lovely capture, Daniel! I would be interested to see what the male blackbird looks like. This one appears very thrush like in pose and anatomy. Our North American blackbirds look quite different -- they belong to the corvid family (crows and jays) and have many of the typical corvid characteristics.

great composition here with perfect DOF, really like the pose of this female Blackbird too.
