Lovely image. I like the just off centre positioning of the bird, the out of focus background and the background info about both the bird and your technique.

I agree, definitely not easy to capture, spent hours walking around Sandy Lodge trying to capture more natural shots before finding the hide and feeders! Much easier! Heheheh! Smile
Lovely shot, great natural lighting and BG too. Lovely comp also. Thanks for all your tips so far.

Here, here to all the above. Love the title too! (How do you know it wasn't a 'John Doe'?)
Just noticed this was handheld. You must have a very steady hand to get this sharpness and clarity.
