Just a little chickadee who comes to my feeders. I get tired of seeing the same old kinds of birds all the time, but it's still good practice.

They are so pretty..and nice Point of view.

Hi Shelly,
Nice sharp vivid colors and good bokeh. The eye is focused, I would like it better if you had shown more on the right...TFS

That is grand Shelly!! nice close crop, excellent sharpness and details. I like your BG also! The branch in the BG is a nice balance to the branch he is sitting on!

Hello Shelly,
A very sharp capture of this chickadee, always attentive!
Very good side lighting and perfect details in its face features and plumage.
The POV is fantastic from the back while obtaining a marvelous profile.
Well done for this neat work.

This is simply an amazing closeup capture from a lovely bird, Shelly!

Great sharpness and well done focus on its tiny eye.
The colors are natural and contrast to the blurry BG is well maintained.
Good work as usual!

Kind regards,

Hi Shelly
What a cute bird captured with beautiful framing and spot on focus with superb sharpness while the bokeh is amazing.

Hi Shelly

Love the symmetrical oblique angles of the bird and branch. Good sharpness, color & dof. The glint in the eye is a nice bonus. Tfs!

Lovely colours and details. Nice light and brokeh. TFS
