Bad Light doesn’t always stop play

It’s been a pretty bad weekend for photography, a lot of the weekend was darker than the Eclipse last week. However, in the break between the heavy rain today, I was determined to get out and photograph some of the birds in the garden even though the light was pretty bad.

I’m quite happy with the results below which just goes to show, that bad light doesn’t really have to stop play. OK, they are not pin sharp and would never win any competitions, but it doesn’t matter if you’re out enjoying the hobby and the reason you do it. Some of the photos are quite high ISO too and the noise is quite well contained for a Crop Sensor Camera.
