Cleared for takeoff...

Playing with a borrowed tripod, I setup for birdy photos. I didn't have a lot of time, since I had my son with me who wanted some attention. The luck that a bird came, asked for permission to get it's photo taken, and then fly away, was nice to have. It's not my best work, but it's probably the best I did this day.

Thanks to Antonis Kyrou for the use of the tripod. I'm convinced. I will get something like this too.

exif: canon 350d, iso 200, 280 mm, 1/180, f/5.6

    Lovely little birdie. I like the crop, especially with a file so small.

    Well done, Terry... good dof, maybe I would crop a bit some greenery around the tinny bird . but imho....regards

    Very good attempt Terry. These bird do not give phototographers time to compose. I like DOF and the bird is sharp too. Well done.
