This was taken last Saturday when I managed to get out for a couple of hours.
I have been a little busy lately so I haven't been on here much, but I will catch up with everyone at some point.
Thanks for the c&c's on my last picture and a BIG thanks to Alison for the UA, very much appreciatedGrin

That's a very good picture. You are getting to grips with wild life photography. The edit is brilliant I like the short filed of view effect. I bet that took a while to get right. And the detail is sharp and so vivid such a pleasure to look at well done pal.

This is one of my least edited images. The background is as it was. I was lucky as the bird came really close and sat there like that for a few seconds.

I thought this one might be yours Ryan. With your terrific technique for sharpness and detail i can almost see you reflected in the eye of the bird. Excellent !

Excellent pose and detail, Ryan. A lot of nuthatches in the gallery at the moment and this is one of the best.

A stunning image, Ryan, quite superb, wonderful composition and detail, colours and exposure spot on, the backgroud is just right.
Apologies for the lack of comments recently, will be back into the swing of things very soon. Your portfolio is coming along a bomb.
well done.

A fantastic image, Ryan, such clarity and colour of both bird and bark ... Carol Grin

Thanks for your lovely comments on my little church and you are quite right, never saw anything like it in Australia even though we travelled from Sydney, up to Queensland, down through NSW, Victoria, Adelaide and across to WA, although there was lots of stunning scenery, nothing is ever as gentle there.
