    The bit at the bottom?

    No, I get it really.

    Nice shot (as usual) Steve.

    Cheers,

    That is a really good shot. None of our cardinals look that good. Well done.

    Beautiful shot, Steve

    I'm getting into the backyard bird scene, though there appears to be a learning curve. I'm specifically going after cardinals, but they havent seemed to notice yet (I also have an empty barred owl house), I have attracted a small army of squirrels however. Your shot is exactly what I am striving for. Congrats

    What a cracking shot Steve...I thought the 'Strong' refered to the bird at first because it certainly is a wonderfully strong shade of red.

    We don't really get colourful birds here in Scotland so this is a delight to see and so sharp...wonderful.

    No, no, you mis-understand, I was humorously suggesting you had captured the whole bird (i.e. in portrait orientation) and cropped the bottom off to make it square.

    I guess you shot landscape and chopped off the blank bits either side in reality though.

    Silly attempt (on my part) at humour, I must give that up, gets me into more mis-understandings than you'd know!

    No reason you can't make them look good, james. If I can do it, anyone can. Start shooting, and post them up. I'd be willing to bet we can make some improvements .

    Thanks kevin. Pay attention to the light, direction of light, background, and anything else you can think of , before you place your feeder. Try to place a perch between the feeder, and the direction the birds fly in from, and they will usually land on it, before hopping over to the feeder.

    I would have liked to have done that dave, but i had my focus point set for the chickadees and only had a split second to get this shot. I didn't have a choice but to shoot landscape. (because of the focus point an AI servo mode) I still like it, a nice close-up.
