There are many various species of birds in Poland, there are also many bird kinds in my town. Unfortunately, it seems to me that the rarer bird, the more skittish it is. So, I practice my birds photography on... sparrows. There are plenty of them everywhere, and they aren't afraid of people any more:)


  1. These are always willing subjects in my garden too. Good captures Joanna; especially like the last one.

  2. Thanks:)
    I can always count on you:)

  3. I think you are doing well in your photography. You are good enough at taking the picture with your camera, now you have to learn how to be a kind of (movie) director and direct the birds to do certain things. You have to give them a "stage" and tell them you want them to pose there on the stage for you. There are lots of ways to do this but a simple way is to get one of those shepherd hooks to hang potted plants on and push that in the garden (about waist high - the hook part) and then put some container of food (seeds) close. In time, the birds will all pile up there in the vicinity trying to take turns at the small bird feeder and one or more will have to perch on the plant hook. Now, you have the best shots in town.
