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.
