Yes!! There are two....

I rather like my lens ....very user friendly.
This bird was taken through a mesh barrier and in V1 its not that visible to me.
V2 you can see the lines.. but I included it as he seems to be asking why he is stuck here in this cold weather....
Hand held as always.

A sincere thankyou to Dougie (Scottishlandscapes) for his wonderful user award for my leaf in water image.
Much appreciated Dougie.... and it got me through that hospital visit ...no pummelling !!!WinkWinkWink

I don't think I have seen that many birds more colourful than this inquisitive fella...and he looks VERY inquisitive in V2 with his head cocked to one side like that. Almost as if he's going, "Really? That f-stop? Lemme see afterwards".

Love the shot in V2. Not just for the pose and angle but also 'cos the background has taken on such a cool abstractiness Smile
