    Nice captures Holo, how did you get so close to get them full frame?

    Nos 2 & 3 are my faves, 4 is spoilt a bit by the branch in front, which is a pity.

    I find bird shots are easier in winter when the trees are bare.

    Hi ya


    Know what you mean about the last one.They have all been croped a little bit but not much. These were taken in April down in Devon were we rented a cottage. The bloke who run the place had set up loads of bird feeders hanging from the trees, all I done was sat in a chair and wait for the birds to get use to me then the carried on there bussiness, could of got loads off them at the feeders but didn't what the feeder in the pictures, wanted a more natrual look. By the way thanks for the ID of the female one Mike.


    Werewolf thanks for the comments. Any advice you need I will try and answer but still learning myslef. Also let us know how you get on with the lens was looking at this myslef.

    Great shots Holow, you've done a good job with those. I've tried photographing sparrows in my garden and it's not easy.
