That acer of your's does provide for such a dramatic backdrop to your bird shots, Sylvia, thrown so well out of focus by your wide aperture: The bird itself is so well captured with fine plumage detail and colours.
Very nice work.
Ronnie.

That bush certainly gives out an unusual colour.
The Great tit, is a fine head to tail shot
