Only for tidiness, they are massive!

Mind you they need to be they are predatory and go after wasps/hoverflies etc.

Just my view anyway.

Finally got around to this one - it's a bit poo in the light of the stuff posted already, but one of my better ones...



These birds were all over Tenerife, generally living the high life on left over junk food and tourist litter.

Nice one gagsy. I think they would be able to take a little level adjustment to increase the brightness though, they look slightly dark to me.

Here's a shot of a young blackbird I took from my bedroom window about half an hour ago:

Young blackbird

I heard a little singing as I sat on the computer and looked out to see him sitting just below the window! Couldn't focus close enough with my 300mm f/4 so had a mad panic rush to change to the 90mm macro before he flew away. Got two shots off (both very under-exposed) and used the RAW processor and Paint Shop Pro to produce this from the better of the two shots.

EDIT: I think I'm developing a bird fetish - pretty much all my recent shots have been of feathered friends!

Just got back from Wales, where I popped into Gigrin Farm for a chance to get some Red Kite shots... awful light and I was forced to run the D200 at ISO1600

Anyhow just a couple came out OK.
