Tai­wan cherry blos­som

l Dur­ing spring, when the blos­soms are flow­er­ing, groups of Ja­panese white-eyes of­ten gather around the Tai­wan cherry trees in the morn­ing. There are some­times hun­dreds of these tiny birds con­gre­gat­ing in groups to play with and sing to each other. The sheer num­ber of birds makes get­ting a good com­po­si­tion chal­leng­ing though. I picked out a good frame with the blos­som as the back­ground and then set up my cam­era on my tri­pod – and spent two days try­ing to get this shot.
