I don't think that I'm the only one, normally I take as much shot's as possible when I get the chance.
And then later when checking them somehow some shots are marked for the garbage bin that are to good (imho) for that place.
Just lucky to have found these before I deleted them.

Enjoy Ronny

      Even though these birds are not classified as rare here, I've never seen one myself. Quite an achievement to get such nice shots.

      #1 though is a little too big for my 19" screen, and there is some kind of resizing artifacts, a strange pixelation pattern. Did you resize it to enlarge it?

      Hi Ronny,

      These are nice captures. Certainly deserving to be saved from the circular file.

      The Brown Creeper here is pretty elusive -- and hard to shoot. They're tiny, hard to spot because they're constantly spiraling up and around a tree. I've managed a few shots of a couple, but from pretty far away, so they're not nearly as detailed as these or the one from the previous post.

      Thanks Kjell,

      I didn't upsize the image but I'll have to redo the post processing, there is definitively something wrong with it.

      Thanks Scott

      one of the nice things about these birds is that when you've spotted them after a few minutes they almost ignore you. on the other hand I've tried to find them again in the same area but ... no succes.

      I rarely see them around here and don't have any acceptable shots of one. Very nice, but strange edges!

      Thanks Tom,

      just reloaded the top picture. The blue edge on the back of the bird has been removed and it's not so oversharpened as the first one.

      I like the background on the first one, but the way the bird is looking to go up in #2 really makes it appealing. Perhaps you can PP the background of #1 to #2? Either way I agree with everyone else, those are really nice shots that don't belong in the dust bin.

      Very well captured, the 2nd one is my favourite.
