20D, 400/2.8 + 20mm extension, ISO400, 1/250 @ f5.6, Gitzo + 393, C1pro + CS2.

Hi,

Just thought I would post another from my session at the weekend, haven't managed to photograph many of our Garden birds this year as I lost both my feeding stations to development work (what happens in the south east) and have yet to establish any new ones.

Sorry about the leg iron, the ringers around here are rather enthusiastic.

Nice shot Phil, I agree with you about the leg iron but there again this is the BTO's way of monitoring movements & life span, sometimes I question is ringing of common species necessary?

Sorry to hear about your feeders.

Cracking shot anyway!

Enthusiastic ringers, hmm, almost as good as trying to get a picture of a red kite without a tag Smile

Actually I don't think it detracts too much from the image as I've not seen a ringed blue tit before it actually shows something a little different.

I think the lighting was captured just right, you have good detail and nice exposure. Your BG really works great with your subject, well done! Spot on! Click!!!

Fantastic shot, and the ring adds to the interest. As someone working in this field, it is often the marking of common animals that tells us more than marking the rare ones. I am glad you did not cheat and airbrush it out.
