To those who wait Ann. What a difference not cropping makes Smile
Excellent plumage detail and eye and a first class bg.
Did you get any without the convertor on? as you say he was too close to give more room and show a little more of the thistle.
Cracking capture

I didnt try taking the convertor off as I didnt think he would stay if I made any noise whatsoever - I was also watching a nutty for which I would have needed the tc

The first time I wnet out with a 400mm lens to the park, a blue tit came up to it. I was unable to focus as it was too close but I could have hit it on the head with the end of my lens.

The detail is excellent and sharp in the right place
