Hi all, after spending a few hours in the woods looking for new shots and coming back with nothing I found this little guy/gal bobbing around on some steps in the garden, sods law I suppose. The tripod was still in the boot of the car so it's H/Held with a 500mm prime, needless to say my left arm will be in plaster for the next couple of days Wink having said that I'm quite pleased with it in a way Wink
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on What the F*** and a special thank you to Lillian and Bill (goso) for the UA's, very much appreciated as always,
Regards,
Geoff.

I can't help laughing to hear that the wren was in your garden, perhaps you should stay at homeWink.
It's a beauty, well worth a sore arm.

A little darling, Geoff, perfectly captured. I often have the same problem as you, go for miles to look for fresh material, find nothing, then come home and find something in the garden Grin Carol

A lovely capture of a Wren Geoff.
Well worth all the arm ache Eh?
Maybe toning down or removing the blue areas on the right would remove a distraction.
Great image all the same.

Fantastic image Geoff! Saw a lovely Robin singing away on a post kind of silhouetted against the falling sun... typical I had just put the camera away in its bag nice timing I think not!
