At last a chance to get nutty at a sane shutter speed with my Sigma 600mm. Taken @ 1/500th sec. The lens is a mirror fixed f8 lens from the 1970s.

Hope you like him/her, they are busy feeding youngsters who I think will leave the nest in the next two days. One youngster is leaning precariously far out at times!

I've added a rather noisy pic of one of the little ones, who is now not much smaller than his parents, and I think will fly (fledge?) very soon. He/she just sits there leaning out of the nestbox waiting for grub. Archetypal teenager! Wink

Just a quickie.

Good times to all.
Dave.

What detail, Dave! I think the late sunlight helped with the details but also your cleverness with older lenses and cameras.

Brilliant set of shots Dave. That little one has grown so fast. I have been spying on some great tits nesting in a wall where I walk the dog. No sign of any action today after yesterday's gales Sad. Moira

Three fine images, Dave, superbly captured. Do hope you manage to capture the babies as they actually leave the nest box. Carol
