    Took this Marsh Wren today. 70-200 VR and 1.7 TC. This is a 100% crop. I was about 10 feet away. Comments and critiques welcome.

  2. Great shot Scott. I can't believe how close you got to this guy. We have Marsh Wrens up here, but I can never get them out in the open to get a clear shot. Beautiful pose in this one with the tail fanned like that. My only minor comment would be that the lighting is a tad harsh. You might be able to calm that down a bit in PS.

    Thanks for the comments, Tim. I took this around 11 am. I know this is not the best light, but it was the only time I had to shoot. Most of my shots of these wrens were a little blurry from the birds constantly moving. This was the best of them.

    Very nice shot Scott. I too am amazed at how close you were able to get. Were you shooting from a blind?
