With Mom, on their last day in the nest. Good thing, as they barely fit!!

Let me know what you think and thanks.

This is a good picture, I find it really hard to sneak up on birds that close and get good pictures like this that isn't blurry. I don't like the foreground blur though, I think it takes a little away from the bird, you don't have to get rid of it, just decrease it. I also think the thick branch on the bottom could have been less distracting if you rose the image higher to get rid of most of it. Other than that, this pic is great.

Now I like the blur in front I think it frames the birds nicely.

Thanks for both responses - shows you can't please everyone all the time!! I am going to have a go at "cloning" out the blurry branch and re=crop - I'll post later and see how "we" like it.

Thanks again for the comments.

Here's a revisit - with the blurry twig cloned out and the bottom nest/sticks cropped out. Not sure which one I like better.....

I like the second one, it puts more emphasis on the beautiful birds.
