Default Some garden birds

the sun finally appeared today and went out to take some photos - wildlife seems pretty scarce this time of year but i cheated and had put out the bird feeders and seems like the birds finally found them

mostly blue tits but got some not bad photos













and an unrelated one from the other night

What fun pictures - your blue tits are so cute! The moon is also very nice, but I like the birds.

Nice bird shots. These birds are new to me; where are you located?

Nice feather detail on #2.

Very nice John.
some are a little big for my monitor but, other than that, very pretty!
You got a really good sharp shot of the moon too.

Pretty darn good John. Do you have any noise reduction software? I use the noise reduction in Adobe Lightroom as well as NeatImage. I find the two together do a very good job of cleaning up the high ISO induced noise in my photos.
