Robins Nest

By kel55
Couple of robins have made there nest at the bottom of my garden , they seem very careful to check for threats just before they return to it , stop at this branch just before the return more often than not , so prefocused an set cam on tripod and triggered with extended lead from kitchen , 15 mins later he showed up .

Missed it sorry Kel! Characterful pose and lovely bokeh. The eye is sharp which is excellent. There's a little less feather & bark detail than I'd expect, especially on the chest. Not sure why; according to reviews of that lens it softens a little at f/5.6 and 400mm but still scores 'very good' for sharpness. Did you hand hold with the IS on? Should still be sharp even at 1/320 I'd have thought but that's the only reason I can think of for the slight lack of detail. There are lots of tutorials online about how to hold the camera for max stability and I guess 400mm is very unforgiving! Perhaps you could set up the camera on a tripod, turn off the IS, pre-focus on the perch and bait it with a meal worm?!!
