Today our Blue Tits left the nest.
Last one had to be lured out, but it left in the end.

...  Ducks and geese were enjoying the cool water.

I love this as an image John (the bird is almost incidental)

It's as if the living creature and the water have become an extension of each other
(and also explains the English expression "...like a duck to water" to explain something that comes naturally to someone)

Waaay back before COVID kicked in here, I was getting some advice from Peter and others about good setups for BIF.
And I note that Bent's marvellous BlueTit leaving the nest box was shot at 1/3200

I should have considered that before shooting this week.
I'd gone up to 1/2000 but obviously needed more. Despite the fact these two were decelerating you can see the relatively sharp hand of the trainer, and the more blurred image of each bird.

More work needed here (but if I got a sharper version of either of these, I'd be really pleased!)
Any other comments & suggestions are most welcome
