    Chickadees

    A few more chickadees from the feeder. A couple on the rope, and a few with a shed deer horn.

    Chickadees are a really cute bird to photograph.

    Nicely done as usual.

    Nicely done Steve. Pretty little birds, I remember them from when I lived in New Hampshire. I think your Spruce or Fir branches worked better in a composition, more natural.

    Hi Steve,

    Good use of fill flash addresses the problems of no catch-lights in black eyes often seen.

    You make it so difficult for me to try to be helpful without appearing really picky

    The one point I'll mention, which you may well have already appreciated, is that in #3 and #7, the bird is perched on a part of the antler we cannot see because it is behind a closer (and hence more out of focus), bit - which looks odd.

    I've been shooting birds on my feeders recently, but the results are utter rubbish compared to these

    Hi Steve,

    Lovely little birds they are. I prefer the shots against the darker background #1 and #2. Beautifully sharp (as usual). Just quality.

    Thanks for sharing
