One from the winter.
In this picture I caught this stonechat female standing in the raing, as you see from the shooting data the light was very poor, but evethough I tried to shoot, the result was not bad, but one goal I didn't achive, it is very hard to see that it was raining when I took this picture, maybe the next time/year... :)


The picture apears to be not so sharp, it is because the stonechat is all wet...

Hi Elroyie
Even though she might be wet she sure is sharp enough for me. I would be happy just to get this kind of detail on a dry little bird this size with such a magnificent BG.
The colours are stunning, the DOF is absolutely spot-on, and the exposure is amazing.
Very well done and TFS.

Nice shot, sharp detail of the bird and like the green BG.

Hi Elroyie,
Very nicely done, under very adverse condtions..I kinda like the wet look :)

Hi Elroyie

Great composition. The BG is fantastic. Good light and colour. Nice pose of this wet wee guy. Tack sharp with perfect DoF. :-)

I just love the way you capture the birds, it works really well and this shot is no exception. The colours are wonderful and the detail oustanding.

There is just enough of the rain showing to tell that it was raining and that is one long rain streak for 1/100.
