Decided to take the plunge & post an image
Took this today at a feeder.
Comments & critique appreciated
Hi Vince - welcome to EPZ.
What a first pic - great shot!
Good sharp shot, welcome to EPZ as well.
Great first post,welcom to EPZ.
Great image ,, well done.
great detail well done
Very nice shot,well done
Nice capture - the eye looks really sharp. It's a pity about the bag of fat though!
I heard good tip were you can still attract the birds by hiding the food in between the fork of twigs and branches.
excellent shot, well captured and welcome to EPZ.
Critique - not very good from a pohotographic or bird portrait point of view to see the unsightly food bag.
Comment - lovely sharp shot of the bird, and it does show behaviour i.e. feeding on a fat ball in winter, with some nice klighting too. TomL has the right suggestion. Overall a thumbs up, and welcome to epz.
Great shot,nice detail..
Welcome to EPZ
Good shot, welcome to epz. Have fun on here it is adictive.
Welcome to EPZ. This is a very good effort - well done!
Good capture, well done.
definately hide the food, but the quality is great. Welcome onboard
Great shot, very clear and sharp.
P.S Found this on the RSPB website re fatball net type feeders...
Mesh bags - a warning
Peanuts and fat balls are regularly sold in nylon mesh bags. Never put out any food in mesh bags. These may trap birds' feet and even cause broken or torn off feet and legs. Birds with a barbed tongue, eg woodpeckers, can become trapped by their beaks.

Nice shot of the bird,but would be alot better without the food bag.
Rub it into the bark,better for the picture and safe for the birds.

Welcome to EPZ!
Wonderful shot! Great first upload!
Thanks for the feedback & critique.
With regards to the mesh article issued by the RSPB, this seems to be over exaggerated a bit, I have been using fat balls in mesh for years with no problems. Yes its an issue but personally I think cats, main roads & garden rodentacides cause more damage to wildlife. Note taken though on the mesh.
Have 30 Vince.
Wow, Vince, no need to worry about taking the plunge mate. I thought your blackbird was good, but this is a fantastic cpature and a wowzer for your first upload. Wlecome. I hope you get as much out of this site as I have done
This is a fabolous shot, the colour is excellent and it's pin sharp and well composed. Welcome to Epz.
