Yellow Hammer

By Kim Walton    
Ok its not a real close up, (about 30 meters) more of a snap shot---i was out walking the dog and this fella started singing its heart out.
Had to have a go at it as i had big(ish) lens on trying to get a Heron on the local pond
(failed there)

Thanks For comment on crop Mark

It works on here but not in the full size image.I lose the detail in main "vocal point"---sorry Focal point---the head.

Have a nice weekend.

It's not a corn bunting - they are not as yellow as this, it is the closely related yellowhammer. Very nice shot of it though.

One heck of a snap shot, Kim. More than compensates for the disappointment of the heron.
