Goldcrest (Regulus regulus) male

By Vpics
My good friend David Bevan has a very good selection of bird song recordings and a set of outdoor speakers which we set up near this Goldcrest's territory and played a recording of it's song and sure enough, he came to see who his rival might be and gave a good showing of display and singing and even landed on the speakers Smile

I've tried for Goldcrest photos before but have never managed to get near enough to them for a decent shot and this method works a treat.

Mnay thanks for those who voted for and commented on my previous photo.

A superb image of a difficult bird to capture - always moving around quickly.
Nice pose and sharp detail.
