Good shot Dave, even the blurred leaf in the foreground adds to the picture. These are difficult little birds to see, so to get such a well framed shot as this is good.

My, that sounds like a big lens! Lovely to see it warbling away, and looks like you controlled the exposure perfectly.

Thanks to all for comments.
Brian - I agree about the blurred leaf - I wanted to capture the bird AND its enviorment. What you see is a serverley cropped version of the original but I think it still works.
Tony - it is a big lens and it lets you know after humping it around all day

Kind regards

You forgot to mention the very large tripod needed to hold that huge lens combination steady. I reckon that all equates to about a 1200 mm lens plus the cropping afterwards. Excellent shot!

Wonderful shot, the bird could be holding that pose especially for youSmile You have some excellent bird pics in your portfolio Dave, pays off to carry that lens around, do you use a golf cart (vbg)

Delightful capture of a pretty little bird .Although I quite envy that outfit of yours think it would be too much for me to handle these days. Love the soft green background would look good on a magazine cover . Click
