  1. Captured this little songbird today. I guess it is a "Rotschwänzchen"?


    It was pretty dark, but came out good enough.

    D200 with 70-200VR + Kenko 1.4xTC + cropped :Crunk:
    (still waiting for an affordable 400mm :redface:)
  2. What a cutie Michael! As small as the bird is, your composition works very well.
  3. This is a beautiful shot Michael. Perfect background makes this little songbird pop.
  4. Little birds are fun to capture.
    The composition and detail here are just perfect!

    BTW, That sounds like a serious case of lens lust you have here, Michael!

    Quite the beautiful image:>)))))
  6. Michael, I also like the composition, nice picture.
    I browsed through my bird book. The closest match I found is a one year old male "Hausrotschwanz" with the first summer "dress".
  7. I think its called a redstart in English.

  8. Thanks for the comments!

    And many thanks to Daniel and Alan for helping identify this pretty bird.

    Yes it's a female Black Redstart, (Hausrotschwanz).

    Saw some juvenile ones earlier too. Must have been breeding nearby.
    The little ones really look like little grey hairballs with tiny feet :Crunk: But are very shy, I'd need a 800mm to capture these..........
