Bird photography is always a popular topic among outdoor photographers. The challenges presented in trying to get a good photograph of a bird though, are difficult to understate. Besides the skittish nature of the animal, problems with weather, wind, light and backgrounds always seem to throw themselves into your path. These recent images though show what can be done with a bit of skill and patience and why the subject of birds continues to be a favourite among photographers everywhere.
