To get a sweet shot of one of these quick little birds is always a joy, but to catch it with blossom is just showing off! Smile A gorgeous shot I'd give eye teeth for! Very well caught!

The flowers add to this picture.

Really good image of these endearing little birds Justin, my only gripe is that it looks a tad over-sharpened, although in fairness I am viewing it on a 22" monitor, which can sometimes exaggerate that problem. Compositionally I can't fault it, I'll have to try and find a similar perch next time I'm out and about Smile

Lovely shot - but have to agree with Ade that it looks a little oversharpened.

Many thanks for taking the time to look and comment.Much appreciated as always.

Hi Ade,
You could well be right regarding the sharpening.It doesn't look too bad on my 19" CRT screen,although it is perhaps bordering on the brink of being over-sharpened,and the problem will probably be even more pronounced on a TFT.

Really like this one, the two flowers on either side really frame the bird nicely and the background looks great, nicely done.

Cheers,

A really great capture . These birds never stay still for very long and to get such a shot is excellent. The picture has a very Japanese woodcut look about it.
