Tuft Titmouse
Here's a couple shot's from this past weekend.

You've caught some great detail in such a small bird, particularly photograph number two. The second shot shows the birds bill and eye better than the first, and I think that's what makes it my favourite of the two postings.

Can I ask what noise reduction and sharpening, if any, you've applied to these images ? The birds crest looks a little "greased" to my eye, almost like there's some detail that's been smoothed out....

Very interesting. The titmouse I get up here (Mass) looks a bit different that this one. Maybe it's just the angle? Don't know.

You did a great job of exposure and good non-distracting background. I normally do go for feader shots (they are often boring, but I like these.

Graham, where do you see the loss of detail. I think I see a little on the lower breast of the second shot, but I wasn't sure if it wasn't just the smoother feathers there.

On the front of the crest in the second shot. Or it may just be my eyes. :roll:
