I'm with you on the feeders Ron but totally agree that this one is well worth a showing! Super timing shows the movement of the wings and the expressions are priceless! Always exceptions to rules!! WinkWink Happy New Year to you & yours! Lou

What a fab action shot with such fine detail but just the right amount of blur in the wings.
I am very envious of those like yourself who can capture such splendid action nature shots.
And the interaction between the pair could not have been better displayed.
All the best to you and your's for 2014, Ron, and with many more such fine captures obtained.

I see where you're coming from, and in many cases I'd agree, but as this is a super action shot of what they do, so you should take it and post it.

Beautiful captureSmile

This is a great capture Ron. Not only getting the birds in flight, but the exchange between them. Feisty birds.

Both birds eyes in sharp focus, while showing wings with blurr - I don't give a damn about the feeder, it's a damn good shot..!
Masterful, Ron.

A cracking shot of these two **** sparrows having a barney, you've captured the moment perfectly. I too don't like taking shots of birds on feeders although i broke that rule today when i snapped a great spotted woodpecker hanging from one at Slimbridge this morningBlush
