Yesterday I went in search of sunshine and found very little. Today there was nothing but low grey clouds and rain, but I decided that I should be able to come up with something even in these conditions!  I like to challenge myself and low light conditions are the norm in the bush where most of the birds are, so I thought I should practice photographing the birds in low light.

All of these images were taken today in today’s conditions. There has been very little post processing done on them and other than increasing the ISO setting on the camera and setting the white balance to cloudy, I did nothing different to what I normally do in the bright light. The neighbours probably thought I was made sitting in an open doorway on a bar stool in the cold taking photos but that’s ok. I am happy to be the mad bird lady!

The rapid wing flapping is a display of dominance.
