I find tripods a bit of a fiddle too Louise. Also they are so heavy to lug about. This little one was just posing ans asking for a shot here, and you did well. Lovely capture. Moira

Hi Louise,I find to progress that honesty is often the best policy...So I hope this is helpful and not too critical Wink
IMHO there is way too much perch and too tight at the Robin's head.The square crop really does not suit this particular image !! As far as a tripod is concerned,for me it's an invaluable piece of equipment and much required...Practice is all I can say and the rewards will come with time Smile

Have to say that I must agree with this Louise. For getting the final touch of quality tripods are indispensible. A nuisance 'yes' but a necessary one. For your own satisfaction why not try this in portrait format allowing just a touch more room above the head.
Nothwithstanding all this its still a fine shot and you have every right to be pleased with it.

Would also agree with Dean and Ron - about the crop and also that the longer and heavier the lens and the less the light, then the more and more you need a tripod if you want to capture critical detail. But they can be cumbersome, slow to use and if they take the fun out of it for you, then you have to carefully weigh the tradeoff and what suits you personally. Maybe a monopod could be a happy compromise?

I will use a tripod on a lot of occasions myself, but I certainly draw the line a little sooner than Dean and Ron who I guess will spend hours sat patiently in hides> But then I also have to accept that similar results will only come my way very rarely and with a large degree of luck instead of planning Smile
