Parus major

Above is a photo that I shot today and I am pretty happy with it. I was able to crop the image heavily, but it still looked ok. The image was shot with my Tamron 70-300mm lens and I was kinda close but with the cropping during post-processing I could come up with the result above. In Germany we call the bird “Kohlmeise” but the English name is kinda funny because you guys call the bird “great tit” but the scientific name is “Parus major”. I am pretty proud because my bird photo collection grew a lot over time. I … Continue reading Parus major

European Robin

Today I was hiking because we had sun and it looked a bit like spring. I didn’t take a lot of photos over the winter, instead I uploaded some that I shot previously.

I shot some photos of birds, including the photo of the European Robin that you see in this post. … Continue reading European Robin

If you like bird photos, you can find more on my blog and also different photos of sparrows. Continue reading Male House Sparrow

This bird is pretty too, and I saw the bird quite often on my hikes, but most of the images I shot were not good enough to upload. However, the two photos in this post are ok, because you can see the bird well. I didn’t crop the image nor did I edit the image, because I liked the … Continue reading Here Is Another Pretty Bird
