Ah-hah! A new, sturdier tripod for my birthday! The fancypants camera was just too heavy for the old one 🙂 To try it out, I set it up in the kitchen and waited for the birds to come down to the feeder. The wood pigeon didn’t come to visit, but I did see a blackbird, some starlings and a bluetit. Sometimes we get robins and sparrows too, but not today.
The tripod is good, but fast-moving birdies isn’t the best use for it! When I get around to getting neutral density filters I’ll use it for long-exposure shots in watery places, and maybe stars and stuff if I ever work up the motivation to go out at night! Not in the summer though, definitely an autumn/winter project that one 🙂
