Dunnock (Prunella modularis)
Labels: Dunnock (Prunella modularis)
This little Dunnock (such a handsome, unassuming bird, I think) seemed to have found the perfect vantage point from which to search for insects, worms and seeds. Typically, however, he didn't hang about for very long and this was the only half decent shot I got. Indeed so fleeting was the opportunity that I didn't have time to expose the shot properly and was forced simply to hope for the best at 1/30th second at f/10. So much for a shutter speed no less than the focal length...
