This young man, found a favorite branch to do the ever important grooming.

Fun to watch how he covered just about every part . Here are just a few shots of the process.

As always your nits, crits and suggestions are most appreciated.

Thank you for looking.

I hope you enjoy,

Birdie




1.Need to get all that pollen off my head ! Hard with these short legs

2. Got to get the sides, they get so itchy

  E-M1MarkII    420mm    f/7.1    1/1000s    800 ISO    0.0 EV  






3.Now for the other side

5. Wait, is that a little bug, need to stop for a snack

6. Can't forget the tail feathers they help with my quick moves

Yes, grooming is mandatory and you documented the whole process really well, Birdie! The fill light (flash, I assume) did wonder here.

Really nice set Birdie. Impossible to pick a favorite but I probably like 1,2, and 3 the most.

As always nice series! Question, if you did use fill flash why the high shutter speed? I haven't done any of that type of work so it's not a criticism just for my info.

I am no flash expert by any stretch of the imagination. My limited understanding of High Speed Sync Flash (HSS) is that it basically turns your flash into a strobe . The HSS becomes the continuous source of light for the duration of the shutter speed. Since it is a continuous source of light it does not stop motion.

If I am incorrect on my understanding, please someone educate me.


Thanks
Birdie
