One or two points for everyone to comment on. This little chap visits me in better weather when I feed the birds. He/she is not very big, but very brave and comes to nick peanuts. I have put this up for comment, but also to illustrate that a modern compact can do a reasonable job if used correctly. (I'm not saying the result is perfect, you will tell me that, but I want to show the beginners that their compact will produce quite good images.)

This is with the Canon SX40HS bridge camera on a monopod for support and to help stop any shake because the lens was at 35X, 840mm equivalent. ISO100, 'A' setting at smallest possible aperture, f8 giving about 1/125 as I remember. So, camera support, even with image stabilisation, a necessity.

A delicious image with great eye to eye. My only reservation is the stem in front of this little characters face, but in many ways in adds charm to the image.

I was expecting that one, Nathan. You are right and I've since removed it as that is his favourite route to the grub.

Really nice sharp shot. The stem didnt affect sharp focus on the subject, just the way it should be.

Hi Paul - great pic I don't think its sadness it looks like he's spotted you and your camera and is a little frightened. If you have managed to get rid of the stick then I am sure it will look even better

Gosh, that's really a superb shot! I didn't know it was yours, Paul. I picked it up from the thumbnail...very well done.
