Rubbish weather here at the moment. Mostly wet grey sky, dark shadows with the occasional flash of sunshine - the photographer's nightmare. I've been limited to catching the birds on the garden fence over the last few days!

So high ISO and I had to resort to noiseware on a couple of them. Nevertheless, hope you like :D

I know what you mean Sheryl, bad light here too and it really makes the shots noisey. I like that last shot on the fence, cute bird. Hope your weather improves soon.

I see a bluish tinge on the female blackbird. Due to the low light noise I expect? All the rest look ok, I like them.
Gotta get me a fence like that :D

I think your term "Rubbish weather" is the best... & appropriate... but with that being said, you snapped some beautiful shots in it. All are very nice, but I love the Robin shot...

Sheryl, I love your Blackbird shots, they're tack sharp and perfectly exposed.

Thanks Steve. We've got another couple of hours of rain and then I think it will be fine until Friday - well that's the forecast at the moment! Our road outside has rather a lot of water in it at present...

Yes, Scrumpy, I had to use a fair amount of shadow/highlight in CS3 to bring this one out and as a consequence ended up with the blue tinge. Thanks for commenting :D

Thanks Karen, yes, can't wait for a bit of sunshine. We're off to Sicily in the Mediterranean in April for nine days so hoping to get some sunshine then.

Thank you, Mitch. They are really wonderful to watch - particularly when they're after worms!
