I went for a walk with my dog tonight as the sun was out, armed with my camera as always. These little criters were everywhere! As you know they dont stand still for a second!! I had a 55 to 250 lenze set at 250. It was not easy taking this shot with the dog lead trapped under my arm, trying to hold my camera steady!! But all said and done I am happy with this shot, and I hope you all are too. Thankyou for your continueous support.

I have the same trouble when walking my dog, he always sniffs a scent at the wrong time, result, one out of fucus robin or something.. You have an excellent lovely shot, well done.
