I have a couple wrens in the backyard and I don't know how they do it...every 5 minutes they have a new insect for the babies.These were fixed up abit because it was just too dark in the trees to get a nice bright shot of them..They were good practice for learning the different settings on my camera..

Nice catch Lisa,

the fixing up is not noticable, not for me on my crappy monitor anyway.

Good work

Hi Lisa,

I've only been able to observe and shoot house wrens a couple of times, and you're right, they're pretty amazing hunters. You did well -- they're pretty fast moving --

Some of my house wren shots are here:

Whatever "fixing" you did worked out well from what I can see. . . I almost always do some PP on whatever shots I want to post -- the "straight out of the camera" thing might be good to illustrate a point or the ability of the camera or lens for purist or techie purposes, but for bird shots -- I'm trying to capture a moment, and, IMO, not showing them at their best is kinda like walking out of the house without combing your hair. . .:-)

Thanks Ronny and Dawg!..Dawg ..please don't remind that Fall is coming..not looking forward to winter just yet,lol. All tho it is hard to imagine as its suppose to be 93F today and with the humidity ..110! Those poor little wrens are flapping their wings like hummingbirds the last couple of days trying to cool down..
And thankyou,Scott!..I love your photos of the little guys..especially the one with those big mouths demanding more food! I will have to try a flash as you did because these parents are pretty tolerant of me..I sit in a chair about 10 feet away and just observe...and listen to their nattering..tellling me to go away.But they still go in and feed and actually come quite close to me and strike some funny poses..upside down with a bug in your mouth is funny to me..:-)

Nice capture, I like learning about wildlife almost as much as I like seeing the pictures and you did a good job with both.
