Here are the first shots of the fledgelings in our nest box. Although they are a bit soft on the focus, I couldn't risk disturbing them by getting too close, I still thought they were worth uploading. They are preparing for the big leap of faith, into the outside world.

Many thanks for all the C&C's every one is very much appreciated.

Steve.

A nice little series. You mention the focus, which, looking at the wood grain appears to be on the forward edge of the box. I'm guessing you wanted to focus a little forward of the hole to try and get the bird sharp. With the angle you've chosen I'd say you'd have been fine focussing on the nearmost point of the hole.
Quite right for not wanting to disturb them though.

..... and? Where's the next set? These are tremendous - makes me feel I am actually seeing it all as it happens. He/she really does look pretty stressed by the going out idea, and who can disagree. Great series.
