I Can't Do It

By brian1208
I think this little one was very new as it still had sticky chest feathers. It found the business of sitting up very difficult and its head kept flopping down (just before it fell over).

I hope you don't mind a double dose of "Cute" but I think I've purged my system now Smile

Keep the cute ones coming Brian (It may give me a chance to catch up with you on the macro work).

Great detail and well caught.

LOL Brian.
Very nicely captured. He almost looks as if he's thinking 'what's that sticking out from under my body?'

What a lot of clicks so early in the morning - it looks as if cute's OK Smile

Thanks to all for taking time to comment.

(If I don't get round to dropping in on you for a while please forgive me. NTL has been a real pain for the last month and some days I get about half an hour access during the day (usually about 7 in the morning) and that's it).

I've just clicked your last 10 or so pictures, forgive me for not commenting on them all but I must say you have really hit your stride with your close-up work. The diversity of your subjects and the success you have with jury rigging reversed lenses etc is astonishing. Kudos.

Absolutely nothing wrong with cute, cute is better than creepy crawlies (although you are very good at pics of them)! Smile
I love this, click

Malcolm - thank you for commenting on any of my pictures when there is so much other good work on the site Smile I do seem to end up looking closely at things whenever I try to expand my horizons.

Lydia - I'm glad that you like my versions of "cute", I must try for a "Cute CC" next? Thanks for commenting.
