Very nice indeed Graham, I'm not familiar with this type of bird yet, what is is ? And where you're from btw, I'm far from seeing grass here yet in southern Quebec

Cheers

Thank-you all, I'm glad you like it. The shot was taken at f4 using my 70-200 VR at 200mm. The shutter speed was 1/180th at ISO 400. Eric, the Dunnock (or Hedge Sparrow) is a rather quiet little European bird. It tends to ground-feed, even when there's a bird table. The bird in question hangs out just along the road from my work in Edinburgh, Scotland. There's a decent fast food place there (not a chain), and the staff put out food for the birds.

Regards,
Graham.

Great detail. I like the blackbird as well but favor this one.

Thank-you. The Blackbird has been around a bit, note the rather pale feather edges, but the Dunnock is such a precise little bird....

Regards,
Graham.

neat picture. Is the DOF natural or did you emphasize it in postproduction :?:

Thank-you. The depth of field was natural, I was just lucky that the bird fitted into it.

Regards,
Graham.
