A relaxed day yesterday, laying on my belly in the grass with my camera propped on my camera bag :) I have no idea what kind of bird this is.

Hi Karen

A superb macro of the tiny bird with its insect meal, & with excellent use of a shallow dof, & good colour. Tfs!

Merveilleux capatage de cer oiseua avec sa nourriture dans le bec, quelle belle iamge, charmante, touchante, douce et attendrissante, il a l'air tellement cou et fier, grnadiose, avec la branche.

bravo et amitiť

Great capture of this bird with dinner in it's beak Karen,lots of details,you must have been relaxed,your being there certainly didn't bother the bird,well caught.


Hi Karen,
Awesome spot, very well spotted. Nice clarity and focus, quite a bokeh effect background it has created. I like the angle of the tree, the bug in the bird's mouth is a great bonus too.


Hello Karen,

This is delightful!
You have a most glorious, diagonal composition, the bird (with its breakfast) is perfectly placed in frame and showing good details, and the dof gives a fine bokeh. Great!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Karen! Wonderful bird, amazing scene. Perfect shot. Ideal contrast and sharp. Well done!

Dear Karen,
what a beautiful moment you catch.What a lovely little bird.Nice diagonal presentation and colours.TFS.Necla.

A nice shot of this little guy bringing food to the nest I expect. Unfortunately the hot spots need to be toned down especially the bright yellow/green behind the bird.

Ciao Karen, lovely bird in great action, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, lovely diagonal composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Karen,I like this shot with the trunk set diagonally.It looks like some type of fly catcher to me.
Lovely colours.I like the texture of the tree trunk too.
Good bokeh.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Karen,
This is well captured, nice diagonals, and space for the lttle fella to look into.
There sems to be a green cast, but maybe that is the correct colour.
Quite satisfying to get a shot like this isn't it.
