Had a great experience with this bird, it actually took some food from my hand, which is highly unusual, also let me get pretty close with the camera until the sound of the shutter scared it off.
used the same tecnique as my last upload to blur bright parts of the background.

This is a good shot and I know how difficult they are to take a shot of as they flit about very quickly. We had six in our garden and it was a pleasure to watch them.
Well Done.

Excellent Mo, beautifully sharp and your blurred b/g has come off well. I tend to select the main interest, invert and use lens blur in PS CS2, I find it gives a more realistic look to the blurring, than gaussian but however you did yours, it's realistic enough in my bookSmile
