So colourful birds ! I do not see colorful birds around here...but we have birds that sing wonderfully in the neighborhood 😍
Here is my feathered contribution with a swan of my lake 😉 https://steemit.com/hive-106444/@barbara-orenya/upside-down-swan-for-featheredfriends

I hear you about all those failed shots to get the great ones!
Those were some beautiful shots of the colorful Bluejays!
I used the #Featheredfriends on my post at https://steemit.com/hive-114105/@porters/photo-52-2020-photo-challenge-white-winter-wonderland-through-a-crystal-ball-wednesday-walk
I had some good shots and I included a poorer quality shot because it was the only one I could get of that bird.
Thanks for creating the #featheredfriends community!

Thanks! I do love seeing your far north birds! I'll be over to take a look.

Wonderful wintertime birds!

Happy to be an inspiration for the lovely featheredfriends post you put together! !Tip

Yes, you did me a big favor with your post, because these bird photos have been waiting for quite a few months and now I could finally post them - thank you @melinda010100 👍🙂


To give a !DERANGED and a !BEER is an easy and simple way for me to say thank you for being nice, and giving an additional !MARLIANS or !COFFEEA means I thank you even more 😉

Hello @melinda010100
I feel you on the blurry bird photos lol
The only thing that out numbers blurry birds is my collection of blurry bee butts <,< ( say that 3 times fast lol)
Question ??...... What kind of camera are you using ??
Oh almost forgot !DERANGED

Happy to have your sympathy! I understand blurry bee butts, too!
I have a Lumix F2-200. I'm not a good photographer, so it is good that the camera does well on auto!

AH OK.
Panasonic puts out some nice rigs.
Speed will be your friend imaging birds. I've been shooting in manual lately and I set my camera up 3200th of a sec shutter speed, f8, ISO @ 800 , raise or lower shutter speed ( 1600th min) to keep exposure @ +1 to +1 1/3 .
High shutter will freeze motion and get rid of camera shake, f8 gives you a nice depth of field and the ISO gives you enough light for high shutter speed.

I just bookmarked your comment and will attempt it! ❤️

I also shoot in burst mode( keeps taking pictures as long as you hold the button down) with AI Servo(not sure what Panasonic call it)continuous focus and evaluative metering.
You can tweek this around a bit but its a good all around starting point.
Also there is a video on this I downloaded from 2016 photography seminar, I'll post a link if I can find it.
It was very helpful to me and was packed with great tips and info.
I'm getting a bunch of new photography toys over the next 5 days and cutting my work hours back to 40 a week so I should be kicking out more posts soon. Well if it quits raining that is lol

I will be looking forward to you having more time to take photos and post more! And I appreciate your helpful tips! ❤️

Just by looking at these bird my heart is warm again...

What a nice thing to say! Appreciating nature warms my heart, too! ❤️

You are so generous!

Those tree branches are a pain... Was trying to get this bird last year and the branches kept getting in the way....

You would think those silly birds could sit somewhere that would be more photogenic when they see we have a camera in our hands!

Obviously birds are created to suit different climates, love your colourful birds in the snow. They stand out so well.

They do help brighten up a dreary landscape!

Hahahah funny post... and I can totally relate! There are times that it almost seems a curse and not one decent photo comes! :)

Glad I'm not alone! 😁

I've never seen such birds

There are so many different types of birds all around the world!

You are not alone, I had tons of photos that were deleted and not only with birds.
These birdies indeed do not mind the cold.

It's always disappointing, isn't it?

I've just spent an hour taking bird photos. I went home quite optimistic but came back down to earth with a thump when I saw them. I only managed to salvage a few so I feel your pain!

I'm sorry because you always find great birds, But it's good to know that I am not alone with all my fails!

I love these! The blue and red. The soft focus too. I had some with all the branches too just recently ;)

Thanks ❤️ Those branches are a hazard to bird photos!

It's harder to focus :)

@melinda, birds survive in the winter, beautiful..

They eat at my feeders a lot in the winter!

Hey @melinda010100, here is a little bit of BEER from @pixresteemer for you. Enjoy it!

Learn how to earn FREE BEER each day by staking.

Good morning @melinda010100, I know what you are talking about when it comes to failed pix. Birds can really be tough to capture clearly, I probably get 1 out a dozen shots that make the posting grade. But I still love watching my feathered friends.
Be well my friend have a wonderful day.

Those #featheredfriends can be challenging! Are you on the road?
I hope you find some good Florida weather!

Hi yes, on our way to Florida, will keep in touch. I hope to photograph some pretty birds along the way

Safe travels! I'll be looking forward to all your photos!

I always find lovely bird photos in your posts Melinda.

Thank you! I think we love birds more than photo quality!

I have a post with few photos of a bird I saw during my holiday in Thailand. Unfortunately I don't know how it is called and I hope someone can help to identify it,

Oh, your bird photos are always so good that I thought they posed for you! lol.

Red in Blue sitting in the tree, yup pesky branches... Nice to be outdoors and see such colourful birds against the white backdrop of winter Melinda.

Thank you so much for this very thoughtful and lovely tribute to my favorite crows and ravens, and your other birds that are black. I did not know the Tennyson poem, and I thank you for it. Your photos are wonderful. !tip and resteem.

Tennyson poem was the one I learned at school, most probably the one and only English teacher throughout my schooling years who really was able to bring poetry to life. Thanks for visiting and appreciating.

Teachers like that are rare, but they have a life long impact. I had a couple English teachers who were really good.
