    Turbocharged Starling

    This little fella decided to have a bath just in front of me, now the shutter speed is 1/500 sec, enough to freeze a helicopter blade in flight. thats some speed he is shaking his head, you would think it would at least give him a headache !!

    That second picture is cracking, lovely and clear.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
