Ok here is a shot of the very elusive robin that visits our garden, most people know how long I have been waiting to get a decent shot of this guy LOL
Many thanks to Janet(chase) for all the help she offered with feeding birds, it has encouraged a lot of different species which I am really happy about.

My modest 80 from ebay lens is being pushed to the limit, LOL

Blurred a few bright spots in the background which was a pain.

Handheld again at 300mm bright enough to shoot at ISO100
thanks for looking
Mo

Smashing shot Mo! Great detail and superb job on the background. As for the fiddly hand corrections, I found having a graphics tablet the only way to go. Trying to do fine blurring and what not with a mouse is like drawing with a brick. Nothing like a stylus to give you that control! Of course I found my tablet in the garbage at work, so it wasn't much of an investment!
