Nightingale (close up). 12th-May-2012
Close up of a nightingale singing. I was very lucky to get this close to a nightingale! After spotting this fly low into a tree, I had my camera set on max zoom(32Xoptical) and took a few shots. Then it allowed me several moments to film/video it singing too, before it flew out of sight.
Shame about the poor light/shadows, but you cant have everything!
This was the 1st of several nightingale seen/heard on the day.
