Blackbirds are almost everywhere. They often come to my garden, make some mess, fly to and fro. Just recently there was one, sitting as usual on a wooden fence, watching into my windows and observing life around. Next day there was snowing heavily. None of these black creatures could be seen. However wen returning from a local shop I found plenty of blackbirds nest close to the pavement hiding in front of that snow. As I usually carry my camera here are some pictures.
Birds by the pond
Taking a shot of a bird in the flight is not so easy. First you need some camera with somehow reliable tracing system or at least be fast and have long lens. Apart from this you also need a flying bird. Flying bird should, however, be flying pretty close and no too much fast. Trying to catch flying in the distance is possible but some details can be lost. Luckily I found place by one of Lednice ponds where plenty of birds is gathered and some of the wish to fly.

Wildlife on higher ISO
I like going out to nature and I plan some destinations where to go to and take photo of wild animals. As I was not sure how the higher ISO values will affect picture quality in reality I took my APS-C camera, telephoto lens and went to the forest park to shoot. No one except deer were able to stand as models, generally it does not matter. Results are here. Not so bad for ISO 1600.

Imagine Fallow-deer watching you fem metres from the Sunbeams passing through the trees, Cut tree branches and lying trunks in the forest. All this you can enjoy, if visiting Holedna Park in Brno. If you need to relax, where would you go to? Probably to a quiet place. If I want to relax I prefer walking in the woods, forest, and breathe fresh air trying to avoid any living humans.

A bird sitting on a fence
Do you sometimes have strange feeling as if someone is watching you? It happens to me when I stay at home and am moving near the windows or balcony door. One day I finally found out why I have so strange feeling. I have discovered a bird likes to sit on my wooden fence, and is watching anything that moves around. I suspected him on spying on me, however, bird cannot think and he is probably looking for something to eat.
In the ZOO again
I like watching animals, sometimes I go out to the wild nature but sometimes I prefer to go to Zoo to see animals I cannot find in the wild nature. Thus I have decided to visit Zoo again, this time went to see stork, ice bear, and white wolf. May be I visited and watched more animals but most lovely were those named. Especially I liked three small wild pigs sleeping next to each other and white wolf lying on the hill watching who disturbs him.
