This is taking Nature photograghy to the extremes to get the Bl--dy bird to stay still. I was attempting to capture ( siskins) not to this extreme when this female decided on some extreme photography.
PS this chain actually holds up the feeders at Conway RSPB reserve.
Thanks for looking.

Nice pic: Seems rather a large chain for such a small bird

Well done. Technically a great shot. Try nailing the feet down - but of course, you have to catch them first!!!

Good detail and colours in the plumage, set against a nice background.
Not too sure about so much out of focus log in the foreground, maybe a small crop would help?
Nice image all the same.
