    Feeding The Birds (photos)

    It's snowing again so I decided to top up the bird feeders in my my garden, then I thought it would be fun to move them so I could see them from my desk.

    These are shot through the french windows, featuring two blue tits and a coal tit.

    For the technically minded I used a Sony Alpha 100 on a tripod with a 500mm mirror lens.

    Feel free to use any folks.

    I seem to have some bigger birds in my garden.

    The snow is coming down (again) I'm trapped in my house (again)
    I suppose it could be worse, I could be outside sitting on a frozen tree...

    Thanks Lee.

    That huge bird in the willow is a killer pidgeon - probably so big because of all the veg it has eaten from my veg plot

    The ducks visited last year and laid me an egg, we tried to hatch it but didn't get any little duckies ...

    Nice photos...what make/model mirror lens are you using? I looked at a mirror lens on Amazon for my Olympus E500 (dslr) and it was quite inexpensive...

    Thanks

    Ken, I'm using the Sony mirror lens but I hear the Sigma is good too.

    You give new meaning to the term "show me your tits"

    These are some impressive shots. Absoloutly fantastic.

    I believe i'm going to have to have a crack at one of these.
    Should make for a great ink and wash

    Neil! These are breath taking! Oh what I would do to have a pro-camera, I'm still stuck with my point-and-shoot Sony.
