Greedy Willow Warbler

By JEFFERIES  
This shot was taken last weekend and im very pleased with it, only managed to get the one shot off but with the meal in the beak was an added bonus, thanks for looking and comments most welcome. This particular one is in its summer plumage.
Bigger version is better.....

Phylloscopus trochilus

Willow warblers are small birds with grey-green backs and pale under parts. They have a yellow tinged chest and throat and pale supercillium (the stripe above the eye). They are separated from the very similar chiffchaff by their song. Their population, especially in southern Britain, has undergone a moderate decline over the past 25 years making them an Amber List species.

Good shot.

Helps when they appear to be 'doing' something, rather than just sitting on a branch!

A good capture. The only thing I am uncomforatble with is the frame being different widths at the top and bottom. I realise that this probably how you wanted it to look, but for me it doesn't work.

Well timed shot. From the large version it looks just a touch soft, as if you were at the extreme range of your lens. I recognise it because so many of mine turn out like that (actually worse).

Might be worth a pass with something like FocusFixer or NeatImage because otherwise it's a cracking shot.
