Hi Dawg,

Some of your best bird shots so far! I'll agree with the others on #1 -- The background and composition makes the image.

We're supposed to have titmice around here, but I've never seen one -- so I'm jealous. Their wide-eyed innocent look is so appealing.

Nice work!

Scott

Thanks Scott. The Titmouse is almost a cartoonish looking bird with the wide eyed look and the way it stands with it's feet together most of the time.

I love these shots. Especially #1 and #2.

#1, compositionally, is really strong. You got foreground, background, subject is nicely distinct & sharp & in focus. I second that it should be in a book on birds!

#2, compositionally, is nice. I also like the texture of the wood to give the bird a nice environment.

Take care,
Glen

I like shooting the birds on the limb so to speak but sometimes they are so sharply focused at the feeder it is hard to resist.My feeders are in an area with many limbs close overhead so the photos of them perched in a natural surrounding is much easier to get. All from my rocking chair on my front porch.
