Dont put yourself down :), thats a bird that i have not managed to get a shot of-yet. Easy enough to get at a falconrey type centre, but i only like to shoot wild birds. You just need to get closer :D

Cheers! That's the trouble, although it starts getting expensive...new lens, so I really need a new camera to make the best of it...and a tripod ...and a big new bag to put it all in..:)

I would suggest that the first image is better,, shows more detail, the second and third are a bit too "shadowy". Also in my opinion they are cropped a tad too tight, a bit more room, especially the first would make quite a difference. Just my opinion :)

Some excellent photos guys, but this I just love, reminds me of behind our house when I was a child, it has so much atmosphere, well done :)
Thanks for sharing
