    Sorry guys I have been very busy at work and have had very little play time. The set up is very basic. I shoot early morning or just before sunset with the D300,300 2.8 vr , monopod and lots of waiting and patience. I positioned a feeder off the corner of my house where most of my shots will have the sky for background. When I am lucky enough they will sometimes land in the garden and allow me to get different backgrounds. Thanks for the kind words everyone.
