Yes, wonderful images!

Just out of curiosity, did you desaturate the image of the Cardinal? I say that because I always have to do that with their bright red, wiping out the data...

Really nice woodmeister. I haven't had much luck getting any small birds over here recently.

Woodmeister, you keep getting better and better with every post. I beginning to take some of your beautiful shots for granted since it is becoming more the rule than the exception to see extremely proficient work. My two favorites here are the gnatcatcher and the kinglet, with the towhee coming in a close third. I think that the background on the kinglet is fabulous.

Thank you so much Norm. Your comments really mean alot to me. I really like
the kinglet shot myself. It was one of those cases where everthing just happened to
work out right. The bird in somewhat shaded bush and the background in the sun
just far enough away to give a nicely blurred pattern.

Thanks so much Dennis. In reality, the cardinal and the sparrow weren't that
difficult. They just flew in and perched right in front of me and hung out for
a short time.

As for the kinglet, that's another story. I got several good shots of empty
branches.

Thanks Bobby. I have the opposite problem over here, that is getting shots of the big birds.

Thanks dave. Didn't touch the color on the cardinal. Seems the 20D doesn't
doesn't over saturate reds like my Drebel did. However, yellows seem to be
somewhat problematic at times with the 20D which shows with some of
my wildflower shots.
