With the weather forecast ruling out taking an image in the South of England, a quick search revealed the East to fair much better.
So we targeted the Dipper in Thetford, Norfolk parked in the car park by the Three Nunn's Bridge walked across to the other side ... Easy as that ..
There it was, such a confiding bird ..
Didn't take long to work out where I wanted the bird, it took longer to wait for it to move away so I could do some tiding up, removed some offending twigs and waited for the bird to do as it was told !!!
Just didn't quite happen quick enough, 3 hrs to wait, whilst everyone else went trigger crazy in the shadows !!
But it eventually came ...
The lack of light as is the norm at the moment meant iso 800 ~ F5 ~ 1/200
More dof would of been nice, should of tried it !!
Two nits ....
The background was perfect without highlights on the water earlier in the morning !!
And i wished i'd removed that straw stem whilst tiding things up !!
