Struggle Harder To Blog

A day off today so I took a trip down through Kenidjack Valley, I live in Tregeseal Valley so its an easy excursion for me. My photography fell apart today, some days it is a struggle to produce something descent to blog.
Have you noticed how rough the plumage of the birds have become as they come to the end of their breeding season . I guess they will soon hide and go into moult. My kids have fledged the nest, then one came back, my plumage is in a hell of state and beyond repair.
The butterfly is a Small Heath ( I hope) then a Reed Warbler, followed by a Juvenile Blackbird, and finally a White throat.
The Lens I used on the Blackbird,Reed Warbler and white throat was my 18 to 200 zoom. Please click opn the image to enlarge


  1. Great results, especially with a 200mm lens.

  2. Very nice series of photos. My photography doesn't always go the way I want it to, either. I discovered recently that my picture quality setting had gotten changed or moved on my little Panasonic DMC FZ50 camera - Took me awhile to catch on and get it reset.

  3. P.S. LLLLLLLOOVVE your header photo.

  4. Great shots. I know exactly what you mean... It should never become a chore. As for the birds, when they are in moult you almost feel that you are invading their privacy by photographing them. Female Mallards get a raw deal, I have noticed.

  5. Nice collection Sam. I agree about the blog..
