You have some lovely light in these shots Kevin, and you were lucky to have some good weather in your nek of the woods.
These are really nice captures, so much detail.


Best regards Paul

A nice series with a variety of views with crisp shots of this Mistle Thrush Kevin.

For some reason I think the background is a bit noisy. Over sharpened the images probably? I don't know. Maybe I'm just over criticizing. Over all nice pics!

I like the third image best too, the background seems "quieter" allowing the beautiful mistle thrush to stand out more. Thank you for posting these. Best Regards Ricky

Ah the sharpening problem. Never sure how much is too much. I do notice a lot of shots posted look soft to me so maybe mine look too sharp to others?

Thanks Ricky, always a problem getting the birds to sit in the best place for light and background ;>)

Same here. I always struggle with sharpening my pics. But what ever works for you as long as you love the pics, then its worth it.
