    Hey there little birdie.

    Yo!

    I went for a walk by the sea the other day and I thought I'd try to bird some. I had an awesome time, but I have yet to get the hang of the erratic movements of the birds to get good shots. The light was poor, and I had to use slow shutters to compensate thus making pretty much all of my shots a blur.

    I got a sharp one here though. The bird wouldn't pose for me properly, but that's how it goes I guess.

    It's an oystercatcher by the way, or a tjeld as we say in Norway.

    Hey there little birdie.

    Aperture: f/4,8
    Exposure time: 1/40 sec
    Focal length: 155 mm
    ISO: 800

    C&C welcome!

    Birds are not easy and you do need a fast shutter. Well done with this shot, capturing the bird in its natural habitat.

    You obviously have the same light problems as we do here - worse I'd imagine a being that farther north I saw a lot of these birds on a trip to Scotland and with birds/animals you really do need good light to get that shutter speed up but this is a good shot anyway, maybe if you'd spoken to it nicely it might have obliged with a good pose
