A White-throated Dipper is catching aquatic insects, snails, crustaceans, molluscs and small fish. I was photographing this nice bird late January in river Hirvihaaranjoki in Southern Finland. This animated gif sequence is compiled of six frames with Gimp, showing about 2 seconds of activity.
This post is also a test how WordPress treats animated gifs. Seems to do it well. You just have to remember two things:
- Before creating the gif, check what is the max width of an image in the theme you are using (in this Twenty Eleven the maximum content width is 585 pixels), do not make the gif wider than that (the one below is 550 pixels).
- Do not resize the gif in WordPress, post the original uploaded gif in full size (resizing in WP removes the animation).
