The photos below have a purple hue background theme, all shot with the 200/1.8 and 2x extender without monopod or tripod. All are full frame and, if cropped, extemely slightly on one edge or another:

Thanks, mullen, I'm having fun with the fall colors. It's a blast with all of this rich color surrounding the birds. Too bad soon it will all be gone.

Feed them sunflower seeds :-) That's all that I do, and it seems to work up here.

How in the world did you get all those colors in the background. These pics are absolutely beautiful and I have yet to get a post worthyshot of a Chickadee. They always want to take a bow just about the time I get ready to hit the shutter button. But of coarse you told me one time to get out of the by ............remember.........and thats where the sunflower seed is.:-)

Thanks Normcar. I will do it. I saw someWhite-breasted_Nuthatch and titmouse for the first time along with some bushtits. It seems when weather is going to be bad, birds are hanging lower on the trees.

Very nice photos. The background complements the bird nicely.

There so darned cute. Ran into a group of these the other day. There were a
bunch of them hopping about inside some pine trees constantly calling out to
each other. Just love that call. Chicka-dee-dee-dee!!!!
