These little Wrens are very hard to get close enough to get their portraits. When my cameras' shutter clicked it was gone.

A Carolina Wren......wll, at least that is what they are called here in Missouri! What a great capture this is Michael. The background is very complimentary to the Wren's reddish-brown feathers. I love how you captured the distinctive tail at the high angle. That is the tell-tale sign of the Wren. Mine sing to me everytime they finish feeding. They sing beautifully too I might add. This is going inot my specially designed bird folder that I started. I love birds and this is definitely no exception! Thanks :~)

It looks like a very nosy bird, perhaps due to the beak or maybe its because of its intiguing pose.... I don't know. But the bird seems about to fly away. You caught it right in time. Lucky you.

Great image you made here. The detail on the wren is balanced by the soft focus that gives a mood to the image which I'm sure was intentional. The shallow depth of field isolates the subject and its perch, and your choice of background lets us see the subject in its native habitat (ours!). The other thing I like is the way you got the light to appear as a shimmering halo around your image elements. Taken along with the color contrasts you got into this image you have really produced a gorgeous work here.

Never had much luck shooting one. Between the tail flipping and the shooting off without warning they are nervous little birds.The soft foliage is wonderful with his soft color. That dark post is a great anchor for the shot.

I LOVE BIRDS!!!!!!!!!! Thankfully, I have always loved them or I'd feel like it is an old lady thing happening...hahaha!
This is a darling shot...and I know how hard some birds are to "capture". We have wild finches and they dart in and out and blend too well in the shrubbery. They truly are maddening to get a shot of and I fail 2-3 times per week!
