    • Thanks so much, Emily! πŸ™‚ Still learning, most of my bird shots are terribly blurry, some of them don’t even have a bird in them!! They small ones are too fast for me πŸ˜‰

      • If you only knew the thousands of images I have like that. I’m using the back button focus now and I’m getting a lot more keepers. Do you know that trick?

        • No, never heard of!! Just googled it, and will definitely practise this! Thanks so much for the tip!!!

  15. Gorgeous shot of that bird. The SX50 lets you get awesome shots like this when the background is clear because of its reach. Nice job. I loved the snowdrops photo when I first shot it and voted for it. Congratulations on being selected as a finalist.

  16. when it comes to birds, i have 3 words for you that might help: patience, panning, fast (as in shutter speed)
