Fun stuff.
Hi Ernst, the idea and doing the processing is fun... but taking pictures of my hand is a Pain! Stretching one hand in front while the other has to hold the camera and push the shutter and I have to use the viewfinder to see/compose the shot.

I am thinking I need to be less Lazy and use my android app to control the camera and have the camera sitting on a tripod... If I could train my toes to work the app, then I could even take a picture of Both Hands!!! (I guess separate shots is no big deal truthfully).. Anyway, Hands are Tough.
Yes, use the phone to get the shot, unless you're real sure where to sit and how you want to hold your hand, and can beat the timer.

Have you tried to get the birds to land in your hands?

During the summer we got pretty close to that. I could strech out on a chair and put a plate with seed on it on my lap or chest.. I can see that it is possible. I am hopeless taking pictures with a phone/tablet, but my camera has wireless and I can control it with an app. And using live-view (or whatever it is called) I can even "see what the camera sees" on the tablet, though I'm sure there is a split second lag..

Keep at it, they will come. I didn't believe it till I did it myself.

Yes, the phone as a remote. I don't use it that much, I should do it more as it works really well.
