Thanks guys. Coming from you two, I consider your replies to be great praise. Used my Sony G at 300 mm for the shot. Distance was about 30 feet.

If you nailed small tree limbs to your feeder the bird would be standing on them and it would be a more nature like photo. Otherwise great shot.

Sorry to hijack, that's a great idea Bynx. Not sure why I never thought of it for my feeders... Thanks!

Exactly Streets. Your second shot looks perfectly natural in a natural setting.

So now we will be seeing some great bird shots. Good luck Conor. By the way, if you have wireless remote you can prefocus on a spot on a limb and just click when the bird lands there. If there is enough activity on your feeder that should be quite often.
