Hi Julie

Clearly, these little birds are best shot first with a bb gun, and only then with a camera. The body is crystal clear, yet the tail and head both looked blurred. So the little guy must have been twitching like crazy...

You're going to have to punch up your ISO and shoot at 1600 or higher to nail these little buggers, unless you use the above Audebon "method."

I agree with all of Dave's comments (even his tongue-in-cheek comments). So, try out what Dave tells you Julie - I think you will be rewarded except for the corresponding increase in noise levels.

Beyond that, I have to say that you get one heckuva unbelievable colored plumage in the wrens down under! There are no wrens in North America that can even come close!
