Hi Dave

Yellowhammer stands out well from the OOF background. The overall green colour works really well.

Great take on the Linnet, good thinking on that one, it works.

Interesting shot of the linnet, good job you told me what it was, my wife is the bird spotter, I think everything looks like a sparrow :)

I love this shot. I had to study it to work out the head position to begin with but it definitely works.

The more I look at this, the more I like it. It's like a sculpture. I find the profile of the head a little hard to see, so you have to peer at it, but the backlighting is just lovely and the vignette works really well.
Thanks :)

That feels great, the way the light picks out just enough detail, and the fade to darkness around it really pulls you in.

Week 16 : Out and about

Out and about around Carnforth today and a few hours at Warton Crag. A distant view (160m away) of a Raven feeding young.
For added context - 160m is about 1.5 premier football pitches!

Agree with the others... at that distance I wouldn't have spotted it. Well captured.

Brilliant capture of a starling in mid song/squawk. That beak looks dangerous!

Thanks - aye I wouldn't like a prod off it!

Lovely image, great levels of detail and a good one for the theme. Bokeh is very good too.
Cheers - the background is a yellow privet hedge about 5m behind :)

A striking background, that really makes the bird stand out. Good detail in the feathers.
