Another female Siskin taken from my hide.
This one likes to balance on one foot by the look of it.
Taken with a borrowed lens as my Bigma is away for repairs

Pin sharp talons in more ways than one, love the muted background colours.
very good indeed lovely bird well captured
Another one to be proud of Geoff! They look such innocent little things, and they are tiny, but they can give a good account of themselves if another tries to muscle in on the niger seeds! Great shot mate. Paul.
First class detail, pin sharp and good DOF control.
this is great photography
Beautiful, love the one foot!haha! Well Done
Fabulous shot Geoff!!
I think you need to borrow that lens more often
Caught on the hop.Superb !!!!
Beautiful, clear, sharp shot.
Outstanding image, i used to own that tamron lense, good lense.
A stunning image Geoff.A gem.
WOw flippin wow, stunning work Geoff
A shot to be proud of!
Nice sharp detail in the plumage and good composition giving the bird space to look into.
I bet you will be sorry to give that lens back.
A stunning capture with brilliant detail.
Great perch, great comp, and exposure is bang on the money mate.
I still hate that glare when shooting in the sun, but I am obviously in the vast minority!!
super shot geoff.dave
Yes Phil, luckily for me you are
Superb detail as always Geoff, great capture
Great image, Tony
Cracking detail, Geoff. Ron.
How do you compare the tamron?
Wonderful detail in this image Geoff. Really lovely capture....Sandy
Lovely detail & colour,her foot off the perch makes this one a little different.
hopping mad was it.? is it me or is that sharper than your usual pics.? LOL
Well Jennn, as you know I'm a big fan of the Sigma 50-500, I love mine but I must admit that this Tamron 200-500 is sharper than my Bigma and it's a lot lighter too.
The only fault I can find is that the 200mm end is a bit restrictive for general walkabout use, I'm missing the wider end that the Bigma offers.
Even in the hide, when the woodpecker flew in I could just about get it all in at 200mm whereas the Bigma could've zoomed back a lot more.
Yes Mark, it's sharper, there, I've said it, please forgive me Sigma but the Tamron is a better lens
Like the details and tones in this Geoffrey - great work.
gorgeous image here, we had two on our feeding station for the first time this season
A great shot
