Default Black Capped Chickadee with my ZS7

Took the photo last week at the beginning of a snow flurry and the little guy was being cooperative with me sticking a camera in his face..

Probably cropped too closely but I was very happy with the detail

You're right, it is cropped too closely. Gotta leave him a little "get-away" room. What was the distance to this guy?

Around four feet...And I probably could have gotten closer, he was very comfortable with me being there, and he should be Ive fed him and his family for years!

Very nice shot. I never can get one to sit still long enough to get a shot.

Thanks, we have a family of them living in our backyard, Ive been feeding them for years, they get quite accustomed to being around people after a while.

I like it a lot! What a cute bird, we don't have those in my part of the country. Very nice pose and colors. If I had to be really picky in the second shot, the house in the background is tilted and I find it a bit distracting.

That's a really fab shot. You are lucky that he stayed still for you.
