Trying to get the waxeyes flying - bit of a mission, and haven't succeeded yet!

The closest to flying that I managed to shoot:
Rose these are beautiful birds. You're priveleged to have them.

Not being picky, tell me to pull my head in please if needed.

Do you use exposure lock? I do on my olympus, or quickly dial in more exposure when looking into dark subjects against a brighter background. Camera exposes for the lighter background, birds in gloom look darker than if they were at the centre of exposure.
Does that make sense?
Its easy to dial in too much exposure and blow the lot,
I don't have your camera so can't be specific.
The top one followed by next shows probably same bird,but differing light.
Exif shows different times.

Hi Richard.

Thanks for your comments, not picky at all, and I am always open to suggestions.

No - I don't know how to use exposure lock - this camera is so complicated I only use the basics :) I had started to come to terms with the Canon M5, after the 70D, but there are too many options for me with the G9.

What happened with that series was I took the last two images first, when it was cloudy. Then the sun came out and focus was so much easier. One thing I miss from the M5 is the ability to slide my thumb over the LCD to where ever I want the main focus point to be. So essentially I was taking that set in quite different circumstances. Would have been better if I had separated them out into two threads.

However, I do have difficulty achieving focus on birds when the background is lighter, as I find focus wants to go the light. I have tried manual focus with varying success.

Thanks for your advice, will look at the manual.

I love the feeder, is it packed with suet?
