Bird Ringing

Bird Ringing
On Sunday I got the chance to help out at a local bird ringing session, my main job was to take photographs of the birds (especially close up head shots). It was a totally new experience for me because I am used to using the weighty long lens to photograph birds but this time, it was the complete opposite end of the scale.

The lens in question was a macro lens, which would enable me to take really detailed close ups to show the beautiful plumage off, and to show the birds off it a different light. For me I want to create a story about the bird ringing and the process from start to finish,from catching the birds to the release.

I shall be attending the ringing sessions fairly often now so I will release a full set of images later but for now this is what I achieved on the first go.
