YAM's take on the good, the bad, the ugly and the downright hilarious in photographing birds.


This one was  a challenge. The flash on Fudge decided to cease and desist. Hence, a night-shot of swans in the pouring rain. Was forced to get properly photgraphery; upped the ISO to 1600 and f'd up to 4.0, exp at 1/8... All things considered, I think it kinda works...
