A rather motley collection of morning garden visitors. The Firecrest looked like he had a night on the tiles and all of them photographically leave a lot to be desired.

Technically, most were shot with a very high ISO of 800 to get a reasonable shutter speed. The trees are very dark (woody copse) and we are shooting at close range.
I think on reflection I should set the camera on exposure compensation to compensate for the dark backdrop. The metering mode used was centre-weighted average and the camera settings ranged from Auto ,P,S, A and Macro.
Naturally we need to explore the many functions of the Nikon camera and find out the best overall settings for camera and scope.
