The b/g is a bit distracting but what I like is the fact that it is a natural setting shot and not set up, Ed; Another good shot from this jaunt.

Well captured! I would never be able to ID this wee bird which falls well within the "little brown bird" spectrum for me! Have only recently got around to recognising a Red Poll!!

You are obviously comfortable with that lens, Ed. Great image with thes natural surroundings showing, instead of the digitally replaced bg's we so often see. Did you consider cloning out the twig coming out of his head? It's the only thing I can put my finger on.
