Another view of our little friend, but looks like he has a friend with him too...
Both this and the similar shot were taken using the long-range kit looking up into the tree. Shallow depth of field was key to achieving the 'framing' of the bird with the background being out of focus. As often happens in this situations, the leaves in the foreground at the bottom are very blurred and give a pale effect which perhaps adds a little more to the shot. I hope the shot is 'technically' pretty good, so it's about composition for me.
