  13. Well done Ben. Sorry to hear about work getting in the way but from what I see you still had a great photo safari, even if it was in your backyard.

    Thanks for noticing the AlA Natural approach.

    Here's one more just for you:

  19. Oh Benjamin! Another beauty! LOL, can't help but notice when a birdie is perched on a branch instead of a feeder or hovering over a feeder. To me, it takes more skill when shooting natural! Beautifully captured and thanks for the extra photo!
