Whilst waiting for another opportunity to capture the robin that you saw in my Christmas pic, I spotted this blackbird in the corner of my eye... #smfc #corner #nikon #sigma #birds snow nature

hogman72664 or david: Well all blackbirds are gorgeous and worthy of your lens time. This is a beautiful start to the year. Lovely edit, works well :-)xx

charmychelle: Aww thank you David! This shot was quite a surprise for me in that I never expected to be able to pull it off. Other attempts were either blurred or he was looking away in the shade. I wanted to get a decent focus on his eye facing the sun and I really had to be steady. Fortunately he was in no hurry to move off! 😊 I did some more post editing of the eye and added a vignette to make him stand out better. Have a great night! xxx

jerry0522: Great job Michelle!!! I like the Vignette...it makes the blackbird really pop out :):)

charmychelle: Thanks Jerry, I had to be real patient whilst waiting for him to be in just the right position with his eye in the general direction of the sun. I also had to be real steady as the light was fading and it was just a handheld shot. I didn’t expect to have much success with it; he was a distance away with a window between us and wasn’t on the outside of the tree. I was amazed when I found that I’d got a good focus on one shot, the only one of about 20! The outside blended in with the blackbird so I put the vignette to highlight him better. I’m delighted you like it, have a great weekend! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
