A Sequence of Events (Two Photographs)

I was trying to photograph this flycatcher and I did get one clean shot of it. Then it hopped away and when I acquired focus again it had an insect in its beak. On another issue I have significantly cropped these images. This gave me opportunity to ensure the proper negative space. If someone or something is looking or moving forward it is best to leave a little space for them to do so in the frame. Unless it is a cartoon or for comic effect the frame of the photograph should not abut the nose of your subject.

  2. While this dear bird did catch a fly, I think it is a catbird–these guys skulk around the bushes and meow like a cat, thus the name. They are moderately shy, and you were lucky to get one out in the open. And you got it while it was catching its prey! What a bonus. These birds sometimes cock and wag their tails, revealing their rusty brown under-tail coverts, which show a nice contrast with the grey. I think they are related to robins in the thrush family, but correct me if I’m wrong. Wonderful pictures!

    • Thanks you could be right I will have another look. My taxonomic skills are taxed.

      • By the way, when Linneaus first described this bird, it was believed that he was an old world flycatcher. So you are in distinguished company. His classification was revised later on.
