I would love to get shots like this with such clarity and blown out background.
Excellent work
This is a real beauty Brian, so sharp and detailed. I agree with you about "the ringers" I have Goldfinches with as many as 4 rings on, they say it is necessary for research but I think the birds must suffer in the processSad

A little beauty Brian, I hate to see all those rings on the birds, some of them have them all the way up their leg SadSad

fine capture Brian but that goes without saying they are always good maybe they should be dead ringers TongueWink

The arrogance of man putting a lump of metal on their tiny leg....
They say why......does the little bird care?
But I say why?????
I would hate to have a metal ring to cart around all day every day

I love the way it's clinging on to the end of the branch, just that bit different to most bird-on-sticks pics.

A delightful image of this sweet little bird Brian, as always i'm lichen it very much indeed. Talking about birds being ringed you ain't seen nothing yet till you see some of the cranes at Slimbridge, they look like they are covered in bling with lots of colourful rings and tags on their legs!Tongue

Brian's images are always something to look at. Always at high standard.

As for ringing, in essence it ain't bad as it can help us in monitoring birds' ways and their migrations.
Now, sometimes things can go off the cuff and then it's not ok. Wink
