hard to catch the fantails

these grey fantails really never stop! not the best shot but I've given up getting better. they leap and spin and loop the loop, land, fan their tails out, waggle, and off they go again. Here the tail is half open - they also love staying within cover, so no hope of a clear shot without all that foliage background. still I've documented one of the really fun birds for my month of birds - they always make me feel like snow white as they chirp and circle and spin around me when I'm out on the property.
Oh can just see you as Snow White!!

What a wonderful description , and I have managed to spot this little illusive little bird -- the Snow White reference is so magical !

At least you got him!! They are so tricky - you described it so well :)

Wonderful capture! If I had to do it, we'd be here all year. You did well!

You caught him so beautifully - so clear. Was he warning you off the whole time?

@robz YES! now I love that you asked this because I feel like snow white, but I do actually realise that he isn't dancing with me like her birds, he is saying - look how big and scary I am with this huge tail, go away go away.

They are so fast and tricky to catch, well done.

Good action shot- any bird is hard to capture when it's moving!
