    One of my first small birds. NOT EASY THESE SMALL BIRDS. Don't know how you guys get so many.

    Guess I just live in the wrong place and don't have a "Hubble" lens :>)))

    39763371.

    Well I am off on anothere challenge. Checking out places for the next Merritt "Gang" :>)).

    The Enchanted Forest.

    Will be quite shaded and not much light, soooooo taking the 50mm 1.8 and the tripod.

    Hope I get anything to show you all.

    Thanks for comments and critique.
     
  2. Your right Gale, small birds are not easy to capture. The crop on this image is excellent.

  4. I like the lighting and the bokeh on this... good capture.

    Thank You Gordon,

    I only have 3 small birds in my collection.

    I went to the park one day to sit and hope to find some. So what did I find when I got there. An event was going on. Mayberry days. But that was fun to.

    Hi Dawgy,

    I have seen them chase and actually pect the featheres on Ospreys and Buzzards. Even peoples hair and dogs and cats.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Howdy there Sandi,

    Sometimes it just works. Most of the time for me it doesn't. But getting a few more and a bit better as the days go on.

    Thank you very much.

    I was really suprised at the background on this one.
