Some exaggerated post work makes this little guy stand out. I can't get this close to these guys even with a 200mm lens so the shot is lacking clarity due to being heavily cropped.

This shot seems a little humorous to me. How about you?

David, I'm not sure what kind of bird this little guy is, but I have trouble getting within range of most birds. There was a red-tailed hawk that was chasing some prey and got splattered by a car. He allowed me to get very close, but he was also roadkill; so that probably doesn't count.

One again I applaud your imagination at coming up with anything but typical postings. I fear that the dreaded C-Index will not be kind to you, which I know is a major concern. LOL

Very nice post photo work. I would think that you might be able to approach your subjects just a bit closer if you ease off the car wax that you use on your bald head. :-)

To err is human, but forgiveness was never my strong suit.

You got high mark from me {in voting booth :) !
I love the sharpness of your tiny lil bird and the softness
of background and color. PERFECT desktop image, in my opinion. Love it!

I thought he was a seed pod, David and part of the vegetation until you mentioned that he's a bird. He seems to be staring right at you. It is nicely cropped for good composition.

very nicely done....Even better would be to crop out most of the surrounding background to pull it closer!

great post!.

The reason why the sunsets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

Good post. But the birdie is too small to make out what it is

Great DOF and nice comp.
I think perhaps a little more cropping also - the bird does seem a little lost in the background.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . .
