A flock of red­poll flew in while we were tak­ing a break. As soon as I heard them com­ing, I pulled my D810 out of its bag and was poised, ready to shoot. Ei­nar gave me some salient ad­vice: “Choose one perch where the back­ground isn’t too busy and then get ready to pho­to­graph what­ever lands on it.” There were dozens of birds and they hopped be­tween branches quickly. I aimed at a sapling which was start­ing to bud and waited. Even­tu­ally, a bird flew onto the branch; I fo­cused quickly and took the shot. The colour­ful mark­ings make this bird stand out against the plain back­drop.
