Well I did not say I was going to do a bird each day. I checked the text and I said I am toying with the idea. Be that as it may I have struggled on and here we are at day 2. I have two birds to choose from. My choice is Bluethroat. You will no doubt notice a resemblance to the Rubythroat and well you might as they are the same genus.

I hesitated though because beautiful though this bird is it is no longer in the most pristine plumage. Of course the same could be said about me so who am I to criticise? The light was passable but I did end up playing with the processing in one or two shots to try and get more contrast. See what you think. Day three will be tricky as I have to do chores and there will be no birding. I may have to dip into the archive already.

  1. It’s 3 followed closely by 4 for me, by a whisker or should that be a feather?
    It’s so interesting to see and read about varieties we don’t find here. I’m having trouble keeping up with your BAD posts I guess that’s my bad.

  2. 😦 I wrote a long comment and it was lost after clicking Post comment 😦
    so to cut a long story short: I adore both birds, they are beauties and you captured them in a perfect way! Great work, Andrew 🙂

I'd be delighted to hear what you think
