This little fellow dropped in and stayed there for about 3 seconds, by some miracle my camera had settings that gave me chance to shoot

Well taken!
zed: Thanks Chris, it was over so quick, didn't even get to get Aussies attention sad and she is the genuine bird nut
What a fabulous shot, Tony! Spot on for focus and aperture; excellent smile
zed: Focus point was me but the rest was up to chance as l didn't even get to check the settings
Cracking shot Tony.
zed: Many thanks Bill, got to admit l was happy with the result from what really was a point and shoot photo
A good looking bird this.
zed: Thanks Chad, they have some beautiful birds up there that l have seen in the past but not on this trip

I'd be very happy with this one.
zed: l was Aussie l was
Wow, great shot, fantastic colors, well framed. A bit noisy (high iso) but I think the camera settings are an excellent compromise (I would choose the same).
zed: l suppose l should have done something about the noisy background but the bird was the star and l was to lazy, when l took this shot l did not have the same pp skills that l do now. Thanks Paul

Your camera did well then! But I'm sure you must have had something to do with it, despite your modesty. The background goes really well with the colours of the bird too.

zed: Thanks Ingrid, no false modesty as l pointed, framed and pushed the button. l was really happy with the result though smile
beautiful portrait
zed: many thanks Chantal
Luck is part of the game and you did very well here Tony!

The miracle is your steady hand and great focus. Well done!
zed: Thanks Mike, with the shutter speed and focal length l have to agree
What is this little bird that resembles a tit?
Beautiful capture, Zed.
