I’ve been inspired by a program on UK TV the other night to try out some time lapse photography. (More of that to come in a future blog maybe…) This led me to discover the Interval Timing function on my (Nikon D5300) SLR camera. I’ve therefore had some fun over the past few days taking pictures of the many birds that come to the bird feeder in our garden. Well, I say I took some photographs, effectively it was the camera that took them and I just put it on a tripod and set the timer.
Note that the pictures below have all been cropped from the original images. My particular favourite is the Nuthatch, which is a rare visitor to Evolène at this time of year. It’s noted for its ability to descend trees head first.
