Q: How do you take a long exposure picture with people?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Our little Fantail, the little ADHD bird, never still, flitting here and there. Only 16 centimetres in length, and half of which is his fan shaped tail.
The bird's call is an almost metallic 'cheek.' And he is cheeky, not shy. Does fly close to humans.
