This little Dunnock (Prunella Modularis) perched on the garden fence, with the wind ruffling its feathers, reminded me the 1970s hit, Shake Your Booty by KC and the Sunshine Band.

Settings: F/5.6 1/2500sec ISO800 manual @ 500mm tripod

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my Nuthatch upload - as always highly valued and very much appreciated Smile

This is as sharp as they come Sylvia and have to say never seen a Dunnock so fluffed. Cracking capture and exposed very well against the sky and retaining a brilliant brown eye
Great stuff

This is a winner Sylvia. Brilliant detail in the plumage and great colour. I really do love that bustle of the ' derriere ' -- seems to add so much extra to the image.
