This little Wren was singing its heart out in the Minsmere marshes one sunny morning last spring. So many people stopped to listen to the melodious singing...pure delight to see & hear.

Great capture. I feel a tighter crop would be better but others may feel that the space works. Either way it's a good 'un.

Superb capture. I vote for the space..although I may have made it a little lower and extended it out to the left a little more. Giving the bird a space to sing into.

The song of these birds is mighty and the extra space reinforces this. Just my romantic opinion.

Beautiful capture. Like the space, but would maybe crop about 10% fro the top?

Fantastic volume of song from such a small bird. I am not surprised people stopped to listen. Fine shot.

Great shot, like the space, you placed the Wren just about perfect, who wants a clock in the middle of the wall...
