Lately I’ve been seeing a pair of Eurasian Treecreeper every time I visited my feeder. They’d come foraging around the area where I was sitting distracting my attention away from the birds at the feeder. Despite being super showy and tame, I could barely get any decent shot of them. Of all the hundred something shots that I took, these are the more acceptable ones.
I was lucky with these two shots when the bird stopped for few seconds to pick something out of the hole in the tree trunk.
And I like how this shot shows how well the plumage blends into the background. It’s also funny and enjoying to watch this tiny bird climbing up the tree in a way that reminds me a lot of a mouse!
Sometimes they’d come really close and stay really low close to the ground. But that doesn’t make photographing them any easier.
At least I could get some good shots (out of over hundred fired…..).
They’re definitely one of the tamest birds around here.
A couple of shots taken sometimes last week when the sun was shining. I’ve never realised how important sunshine is until I moved to Germany. Now everytime the sun begins to shine, I immediately go out and take photos as many as possible.
