  1. Beautiful!
    Now I REALLY have to get practising with my new Lumix.
    Do you ever use a tripod or are all these hand held?

    1. I never use a tripod, Sue. Set your camera to burst so it takes several frames when you press the shutter.

    2. The other point that I should make here is these are the nest shots - many are deleted.

  2. Super photos, but the second and especially the third down are really spectacular with those reflections.

    1. I do find reflections cast by water birds to be fascinating, Deborah.

  3. A lovely selection of shots I find squirrels very appealing and photogenic, you shouldn`t need a tripod with image stabilised lenses and cameras these days in any case the animals would be to quick you would never re-adjust the tripod in time.I personally don`t use burst mode that often now I have found high speed focus motion tracking with high shutter speed is better the Canon 7D mkii is designed for that type of use each to his own as they say.Your results speak for themselves it would be difficult to better them

    1. I totally agree about tripods, David, they would be far too restrictive for my photography. I like to use burst as it can capture a variety of poses that I would otherwise miss.

    2. That's for sure what's its intended for I also think the fz1000 is a wonderful camera considering the results you are getting with it not sure who much editing you do after as I believe you use Lightroom don't you think digital technology is wonderful the sensor in the fz1000 is about 12mm X 8mm tiny but a little wonder

    3. I do use, Lightroom, David and am planning posts describing how I use it. It's mainly tweaking brightness and sharpening. I also use cropping quite a lot especially for wildlife which doesn't give time for composition or like the duck photos where the subject in the resulting image is quite small. I try to stay true to what I see unless i fancy being arty as in my avatar. I look better than in real life as an arty image

    4. The bokeh effect is as shot.

  4. Amazing photos. Subjects look as they are posing for you. I'm going to try burst mode so perhaps my subject will actually be in the frame!

  5. Beautiful photos, Sue! Every time I see squirrels, I'm smitten by how cute they are...and the next day I'm cursing them as they dig in my beds and climb my feeders ;)

    1. They do inspire a love/hate relationship, Margaret especially as their introduction here caused our native red squirrels to disappear from many areas of the UK.

  6. Wonderful photos. The colours are so vibrant in the first two blue tit shots.

    1. IThe first blue tit is from this year's briid, Jo as it stull has grey wing tips. I can't see the wing tips of the others to tell. The second one looks to have not quite fully grown its winter feathers as there are flecks of white in its plumage.

  7. Brilliant sharpe photos, the colour of the blue tit is so bright.
