I got lucky when a Winter Wren (NOTE: I missed labled this as a Marsh Wren) poped out of the cat tails right in front of me. I had been stuck shooting things further off, but this was a great bit of luck. I really like the total package. The bird, the environment, the brown fall colors. And that is almost full frame.

I really like this image.

Camera: 20D 600mm f4 1.4TC 1/1000 f5.6 tripod
PhotoShop: RAW convert, touch of contrast, selective sharpen, reduce.

Nice Shot.

Family Name Troglodytidae, any of 59 species of small, chunky, brownish birds (order Passeriformes). The family originated in the Western Hemisphere and only one species, Troglodytes troglodytes, which breeds circumpolarly in temperate regions, has spread to the Old World. This species is called the winter wren in North America; in Eurasia it is known simply as the Wren. Typical of the family, it is about 10 centimetres (4 inches) long, dark-barred brown (sexes alike), with short bill slightly downcurved, short rounded wings, and short cocked tail.

Excellent capture Eric. Beautiful soft light, and color saturation is superb. I'm jealous. Woody

I just double checked, and you're right. It is a Winter Wren. I've never seen one before (I've seen and photographed Marsh, House, and Carolina wren.) Nice to get a Life Bird and not even know it! This is a location where Marsh Wrens nest and at the right time of year you can find... 5-10 of them within about a 10 minute walk. That is what I get for assuming.

Ya, I've got a 8x10 print of this image and it looks even better than this jpg. I like this one a lot. Glad you all do too.
