    • I had fun with the birds in Greece! The sparrows and swallows were just fledging and we got to watch the kestrels too, taking their juveniles on the first hunts πŸ™‚ The owls and bee-eaters have continued to evade me this year though.

    • Thanks Hutch πŸ™‚ They were in a bit of frenzy over the seeds, such fun to watch! I hid behind a car so as not to disturb them. The locals in Kos tie plastic bags or bits of cloth over their sunflowers, as they start to go over, to collect the seeds but the sparrows got to this one first πŸ™‚

    • Ha ha, thanks Amy πŸ™‚ Well I had to hide behind a car within range of the flowers that the birds were feeding on and keep very still and quiet for them to feel secure enough to return. Then it was just a matter of very slowly poking the camera an my head over the car bonnet and use a fast shutter speed and continuous shooting to get a series of images of their feast πŸ™‚ I was using my Sony a58 with Tamron 75-300mm.
