Aside from practicing some HDR photography this am I also took some time to annoy some little birds that were around. I couldn't get as close as I'd like seeing as they were very small birds ... you could stuff at least 6 of those Fairywrens in your mouth before you needed to swallow!! :rolleyes:

Who would swallow such cute birdies? :eek: You did again some nice shots, Steve. I love especially the Red backed Fairywren - wonderful bird! We have nothing similar here *sniff*.

I think around Toledo in the US they'll eat anything that moves and doesn't shoot back from what I can tell :)

Number 4 is adorable. Once again, I just want to pat its tiny little head.

I loved all these pictures, know why? Because it is not too closeup, it tells a story, birds are looking somewhere and theres a field space where we can wonder what he is looking at. Also colours are good, and pretty sharp

I had wanted to get in closer because I like to get shots with lots of detail as well but in these cases I wasn't able so I concentrated more on the compositional elements. Glad you like.

I can see the attention to composition here MA - very nice.
Love the fairywren shot.
