Another blue tit, it was nice and sunny yesterday which really helped with the colours. Hand held again
300mm@ f5.6

Reworked this a little thanks for the comments on the previous upload, Paul(sut68) thanks for pointing the edge out to me.
cropped a little differently background has been blurred a little to help the bird stand out, unfortunately there isn't enough space behind this perch for the DOF to be as effective as I would like, need a better lens Wink

Much better Mo.

The bird looks more natural now against the backdrop. However, there is a slight amount of noise on the bird and not on the bgnd now - due to blurring of the bgnd - a hazzard of this technique I'm afraid.

Much better though.
