Superbly timed action capture, Richard. Lovely movement blurring of the wings and fine eye and body plumage detail, textures and tones. Gorgeous perch and clean bg tones. Definitely well worth an RC if not more Wink. Wins my award for what it is worth.

this one just stands out among all the bird shots. the movement, the turn of the head towards take off, all already stands out in the thumbnail. The DOF is perfect, too.
have been trying during every moment of sunlight to get a shot of a bluetit taking off, still nothing like this.
