  • The Solan Goose

    Thanks all. Late May probably a really good time I think so you are sure to be able to better this effort Pam. I have many more and, dare I say it, better shots.

    Sincere thanks to those who have viewed my photograph and, in particular, for comments and awards.

  • Pied Wagtail

    Thank you both, particularly for your reworking Pam. 'Beauty' being in the eye of the beholder though I feel that your version seems rather flat and increasing highlights has reduced detail in the bird's face which also seems to have a greenish tinge, to my eye at least. I do appreciate your comments though and wonder what others might think. Meantime - I must get a paler terracotta pot! =8)

  • i thought it was a wren but im not sure

    This is definitely a juvenile Common Whitethroat, a member of the warbler family.

    Very well captured.

  • English Electric Lightning.

    Sad to see them disembowelled like this and destined never to take to the skies again. Their memory is deeply etched in the very being of those of us associated with them back in the day.

  • Another successful dive

    Thank you all.

    Many thanks for the kind comments, they are very much appreciated. I am gratified that I might have done justice to my favourite species of UK bird.

  • Arrows at Sunrise

    A cracking shot.

  • Spring contrasts

    Thank you Pamela. That is most encouraging. I will remember not to frame any future submissions.

  • Eurasian Jay

    Thank you Willie. You are correct in that the lens isn't the new VR version - I should be so lucky! You too are correct Paul, I'm afraid though that I neglected to mention that a 1.4 TC was attached. Crop factors aren't catered for in EXIF as far as I know. Thank you for your comment also.

  • Yonder!

    Thank you Willie.

  • Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major)

    Thank you Paul. You too Pablo. The area this was taken is quite difficult to work and I often sit hunched over camera behind a screen of branches, and indeed my tripod, waiting for birds to arrive when the light is quite right. On this occasion it was directly on the bird at late afternoon so rather brighter than I when I would normally choose. But, hey ho, any time in a quiet wood, or by the river, is a good time!

  • It's in the eye!

    Thank you for this very valid comment and the mod. Probably the last thing on my mind at the time was to produce a perfect photograph, the first thing was 'How durn close can i get to this thing'!

  • Black and White and a bit between!

    Many thanks Willie you are spot on with that. Thanks too to all others for kind comment.

  • One keeps trying!

    Thank you for your comment Ju. You are spot on regarding photography and deriving pleasure from it rather than being too serious but when presented with beauty in the form of nature and its wonders it seems a disservice not to represent it as well as one can when it is encountered.

  • Kingfisher Portrait

    Many thanks for that. I think I see what you mean but think that I have to weigh up more cropping against the increase in noise that it promotes. .... and so the conversation moves toward better 'kit' and more post processing.
