Yesterday I was wondering about white balance, so I did mess around with a couple of other settings, but came back to the “shady” setting on my camera. Not the most representative color, but it gives these chicks a glow that I like.
As far as my tripod project, I got everything up and running, but no birds! Oh well, try that again tomorrow. Also, for the tripod near the hedgerow, will try a f-stop higher than 4.5
While I was working with my tripod, I spotted this fledgling robin, still being fed by its parents:
The ISO is high, because it was quite dark in the hedgerow. Even at this image size, you can see the noise.
