As you may know I quite often spend my lunch hours out and about with the camera and usually I just take one of my smaller lenses. Well last week I had two separate occasions when the Iron Giant would have greatly enhanced some shots of a couple of new birds.
The Goldcrest is the smallest UK bird and not only is it hard to spot, when you finally do they certainly don’t sit still and pose for photographs. I managed a couple of pics but at the edge of my range, curse you Iron Giant!!
Then to cap it off the very next day I spotted my first Grey Wagtail. She was bathing and preening and the photographer took over from the gentleman (who would have averted his eyes) and snapped away. Again she was at the edge of my range and I’m sure these would have been cracking with the Giant attached.
So today I will be investing in a bigger camera bag so the Iron Giant is always to hand !!!! But it also ensures I keep trying to improve and means I’ll go back and have another go.
