Another one to be proud of Geoff! They look such innocent little things, and they are tiny, but they can give a good account of themselves if another tries to muscle in on the niger seeds! Great shot mate. Paul.

A shot to be proud of!
Nice sharp detail in the plumage and good composition giving the bird space to look into.
I bet you will be sorry to give that lens back.

Great perch, great comp, and exposure is bang on the money mate.
I still hate that glare when shooting in the sun, but I am obviously in the vast minority!! Wink

Thanks everyone Smile

Well Jennn, as you know I'm a big fan of the Sigma 50-500, I love mine but I must admit that this Tamron 200-500 is sharper than my Bigma and it's a lot lighter too.
The only fault I can find is that the 200mm end is a bit restrictive for general walkabout use, I'm missing the wider end that the Bigma offers.
Even in the hide, when the woodpecker flew in I could just about get it all in at 200mm whereas the Bigma could've zoomed back a lot more.

Yes Mark, it's sharper, there, I've said it, please forgive me Sigma but the Tamron is a better lens Wink
