Ants for Breakfast

By AndrewCee
I've put this up as this is an example of the bird shot as it goes about feeding on ants in the lawn, i.e. no bird tables, no feeders, etc. Interesting to hear thoughts on which works best, the (more natural?) shot as we have here, or one which is more 'posed' shall we say, purched on the birdbath?

One thing does stike me however, is how this shot may have looked taken from closer to the ground?

Thanks for your feedback,

They are both brilliant shots but for me this one is the winner.

Excellent capture. If you can capture a bird away from feeders, baths etc it is so much better!Grin
