Ruffled Juvenile

By Gezina  
Thank you so much for you kind and supportive c'c on the "Dunnock with lunch" upload - very much appreciated.
Today I landed some shots of a bird I've been after for a very long time - I've had some record shots before and perhaps it is the inexperience of the juvenile that got me within reasonable distance but boy was I pleased - in this particular shot it could hear the clicking from the camera but wasn't sure what the noise was - so ruffled his feathers and I thought he was going to fly of, after a few seconds the "hunger pains" must have won and he stayed put and kept forraging - this is almost full frame with natural b/g - Ina

Top marks here Ina, I always see them flying away when surprised in long grass. Lovely low pov and sharp detail exposed to perfection.
Presentation not sure of the positioning of the title being un-uniform but thats me. The GW is a cracker all the way.

Wow, how lucky. Fantastic capture Ina, well done! Like Richard I hear & see them taking off all they time so impossible to take a shot.
