Grab shot of a Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes) taken handheld with 300mm lens from a distance of 7.7m (25ft) hence cannot crop in any more. The bird is perching on a wisteria twig in the garden - the scale of the wisteria bud shows just how small these little birds are. They do however have a ghetto-blast of a voice!!
Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload and a special thank you to Brian (bricurtis) for his User Award on my Eider Duck All very much appreciated Smile

Nicely captured Sylvia. As you say a tiny bird with a massive voice, not to mention a fierce territorial bird.

Beautiful capture Sylvia. I see one in our local wood most days while dog walking, it's song is amazing. Haven't managed a good shot yet..
