They are so quick and flit all over the place, what they lack in size they make up for in being loud.

Nice catch - I'm new to bird photography, but I have yet to get a decent shot of small fast moving birds. Guess I'll have to keep trying!

Thanks, I find the small birds frustrating. You can hear them in the scrub near my home, yet I dont always see them and when I do they take off so quickly that it's hard to get a photo at all:-)

Extremely nice composition and the background blur is super. Did you pick up a new lens? Whatever you did with this shot, make sure you do it again

Norm has lots of spares, Julie! Come on, Norm, a xmas present for Julie!!!

Nice capture of the little bugger, Julie. It's really tough to capture these tiny things that always flit about. I've tried on flocks of bushtits that seem to parade through my property at various times. One second they are there (40-50 of them) and a minute later they are gone. So I know how well you've done in getting this.

I like the way he seems to be posing for you with his chin all stuck out like that. How cute!

alady, you don't need any spares if you can get this with what you have. And I don't have that many lenses...

YET

ps - I sold my 70-200 IS to get the Mark II (and I'll never regret that purchase), and I won't have enough lenses until I get this one back, as well as perhaps a 400/5.6, or a 400/4 IS if I keep up my exercises, and perhaps a...

Wonderful capture, aladyforty

Especially nice is detail of ruffled feathers.

Your new avatar is especially intriguing! Is it a younger version of you? :-)

P.S. You have more motivation than me...my avatar remains boringly the same.

Kudos to you for keeping yours fresh!
