Image of the Month


Goldfinches fighting July 2013 


July 2013

This image was taken in Scotland at Peter Cairns hide which is set up for garden birds. This is one of the best hides I have been to for photographing Goldfinches, not only is there good numbers of this beautiful bird coming but the background is superb as it is a distant hillside. This image happened so fast as when two squabbling birds come together it was difficult to see with the naked eye so I hit the motor drive on the camera and hoped for the best.  Most of the images were out of focus but this one image was sharp.
