Default More small birds from my front porch perch.

Nothing better to do so here they are.

Hi bigdawg! Great photos, and I really like the background... for me, it really adds to the picture, the focus on the bird... I know I keep harping about background, but for me, it is very important... there are times where a very, very blurry background just makes a photo a work of art... there are other times where just a little blur is very, very important... Anyway, you have some absolutely lovely photos here... and I agree with Goldwinger, no. 5 is really neat... Bigdawg, you have a way of bringing personality to a even a bird... Spot on photos, mate!

All the best.

Ned

Thank you Ned. The Bigma at 500mm is quite good at Bokeh. You have a nice day.

Your bird photos just keep getting better and better. Keep posting.
You are getting really good at having nothing better to do.
