I like #1, wish the angle wasn't that steep.

Yes I felt the same but this bird was quickly gone and I could not get in a better position in time.:roll:

I like both very much. They are very moody shots with great background coloration. I think the second one would be a great label for some herbal tea or something of that sort. The overall blur adds to the emotive appeal. This to me is one good example of a photograph that looks better a bit soft.

These have a real artistic look and feel to them Julie. You've done great with the series of photos of the Tiny Thornbill.

I like the angle of the bird in the first shot and I agree with Norm about how the overall softness of the image in the second shot seems to enhance rather than detract from the image.

thanks, I thought the second shot was pretty much a loss, I wanted to get the bird in focus (so Im glad you like this attempt)but as the camera clicked he moved and of course these shots are all handheld so that did not help. I just love the way little birds get about but they ARE very quick and take some getting used to photography Wise.:-)

Just curious as to what focal length lense you are using for the shots? I've got the Sigma 70-200 2.8 HSM but thinking I might need a TC for a little more range...

I like the second one, reminds me of a gymnast on the parallel bars!! The
judges give the bird a 9.5.
