Pied Wagtail

Just a humble Wagtail, but a pleasingly uncluttered composition and an interesting depth of field.

Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM lens, 1/1,000th sec, f/9, 400mm at ISO 400. Distance to subject: c 6m


  1. This bird looks somehow different from those in this area, darker and more mottled.

    I see you still have the Word Verification turned on and I can hardly see the blasted words!

    1. Hi Toffeeapple. Word verification is on because you represent a clear and present danger to national security! Seriously, I didn't know it was on and, following your comment, I've tried to find out how to turn it off and can't locate the setting. If anyone out there can advise on how to do so, I will happily turn the blessed thing off.

    2. Hi. Word verification should now be off. Do let me know if it's not because I can't see it at this end. Cheers, Tim

  2. Aww shucks, you spotted my disguise! Thanks for eliminating it Tim.
