Not a lot of pickins yesterday. Heard a lot of birds but, hardly saw any. Not great shots but okay.

I really like the second, third and fourth shots... the first one looks a bit soft and underexposed or lightened in PS. Keep up the good work.

Maybe not great ones to you Dennis but if I could get a black capped Chickadee as good as the one you have here I would be happy. I have at least one of them in my back yard almost every day but getting that little sucker to be still long enough and in the right place hasn't happenedyet.

Thanx guys!!! Buzzsaw, you are correct the hawk is a bit soft and I could have sharpened it a bit more. Don't know why I didn't. I use a 3, 2, 1 method of sharpening most of the time (.3, .2, .1 pixels) and didn't pay too much attention to it. Houston, the chiickadee and phoebe were taken in approximately the same area probably about 12 feet apart. I waited over an hour aimed at one spot for them to land to get a few quick shots. Be patient and still and they will get a bit closer than you think.
