    The Flasher-Part Three.

    If there are is anyone still following the saga of how I developed my system for using flash to photograph small garden birds, this post should at last give the secret away. Warning. It gets a bit complicated. I had struggled with using the flash on reduced power, as in spite of it working on...

    Hope you don't mind a little color correction I did here to highlight the bird... I really like the symbolism of this picture: the appearence of the bird brigtens up otherwise dull and monotonous day.

    Goldfinch Mating Dance

    Unfortunately I don't have a video, as I didn't have my phone on me, but wanted to share anyway - had an amazing view of a goldfinch performing a mating dance on my clothes line today!
