........do birds, so any words of wisdom, would be greatly appreciated.
Looks as if this one has a nest somewhere, very tatty and a mouth full of grubs.

Many thanks for the c and c on my previous upload, very much appreciated.

birds works exactly same way as any other portrait - composition, backgrounds, exposure, and of course focus

only a real pedant would suggest anything wrong here... composition a little to the right for my personal liking Wink

It's good to venture out of your comfort zone at times, David, and to do things you "don't do", but no-one would know, this is an extremely competent bird picture, sharp eye, good plumage detail, interesting perch and nice clean background. What more could we ask?

I don't do wee bird's either so cannot offer any words of wisdom, David: but I'd you have the ability to capture a small bird shot as well as this, I doubt of you really need of such.
Very well done.
Ronnie.

I have many birds that come within several feet of me every day whenever I top up the feeders, but if I go out with the camera they retreat to the far distant trees - a very good image and one I would love to have taken!

well there was a time when I didn't do birds.. they always seemed to be out of reach or be of the no-see-ums species.
then I decided to have a go and wait and try and try again.. I think my first one was a blackbird,too.
and as they are very tricky with their dark plumage, methinks you have done really well.
Please do more Smile
