05 Bearded Reedling

NPhoto - - Inspirational Images - Mika Linho, Fin­land

There are very few pho­tos of Bearded Reedlings in flight be­cause they live in dense reed beds. I find that the best way to get those flight pho­tos of these funny lit­tle birds is to wait for the mo­ment when they take off into the air. I try to an­tic­i­pate the move­ment and take a se­ries of shots with con­tin­u­ous aut­o­fo­cus. It takes a lot of ef­fort to get it right, but it’s worth it.
