Default Sparrows - second attempt

I do not give up, but the situation is difficult ..... between the branches and leaves of the trees is difficult to focus the so small subjectl, hand-held, max zoom and very cropped.
I am not satisfied, but I still want to share with you:

Alex, I think these look really great! As you say, difficult situation to shoot through all those branches!

Fantastic shots of one of my favourites. Love small birds to photograph. They're never alone and always in groups or pairs. Any small finch sized birds look great and are hard to capture as they rarely stay still. So well done mate. Great work!

Nice work Calatlex! Small birds are hard to get right.

These are great- the lens is performing well- nice and sharp,with little evidence of fringing,despite the cropping...

Very nice shots!

Especially how they're captured looking so 'natural' :P
