Wrens and Chiffchaffs

By Ray42
Many thanks for the kind comments and clicks on the LTT and to Lillian for the modification - Little change with the water leak damage.

Today I am sharing a delightful time sitting under a tree of the lake I go fishing in amongst the wrens and chiffchaffs - The wrens were taken with the panasonic (handheld), and the chiffchaffs witht the Canon D50 with the Sigma 50-500mm lens (On a tripod) - I hope you enjoy these offerings
Modifications and constructive critique welcome as always

Delightful set. We so miss our resident Wrens who seem to have died out during the 1st of the harsh winter weather. Always a joy to see and hear. No lack of Chaffinches though!!
