I expect there will be a lot of snowy photos from us Brits today with our “worst in 18 years” downfall. It certainly seemed to bring out the birds to the feeders. This lady House Sparrow was having a fun time throwing the snow around with her beak!

  • Thanks Jacky! Tell me about fast! I was busy trying to focus on a female Chaffinch and then noticed a Goldfinch just sitting posing and I missed it! We had a Great Spotted Woodpecker visit though – first time I’ve seen one! ;o)

    love the action of snow moving in this, excellent choice for SS, the detail and lighting are perfect

  • Thanks Chris! It’s one of those where you don’t see the smaller effects (like the flying snow) until you process the pic! ;o)
