    Other than the broken limb covering part of the body, this shot doesn't suck. Not quite up to the Master Macatee level, but not bad.... 8)

  3. Little birdies do seem like a huge challenge!! That is a good shot!! :D  :D  :D  :D 
     
  4. Thanks Frank and Daniel. I think I'll stick to the big ones. The have a harder time hiding. :) 
     
  5. This is quite nice Harris and it is good to see you having to suck it up a little bit with these wee urchins.

    Harris,

    I can appreciate you frustration with small birds. Yours is quite pretty and clear and real nice color. Then that damn branch.
    I have only one small bird image.

    Here is a tip 2lb clear monofilment line, tie the little suckers to the place where you want to shoot and you end up with shots liek this. Ps dont forget to clone it out in PS
