  #138 Creatures, Great and Small
Entry 17 of 25
   
 
Chickadee       ©2014 Mepo
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       17th place, 49 points
1/125s, f4.5, ISO 80, ?, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjusted contrast, usm.       Extra Info: Many of these small birds stay with us all winter along a local nature trail. Cross country skiers and other visitors keep them well fed. It's around minus 28 C in the morning but spring should be here soon to give them some respite.

    It is always that way! I have so many great images that never made it onto the card!

    Thanks for the comments. I went back the next day to try and get a better shot but the SD card failed when I got it home with some fabulous shots on it ( the one that got away comes to mind) so I froze my butt for zilch LOL

    Love the fact that you've caught him with the seed in his mouth. The soft background really makes him stand out

    Beautiful picture, good sharpness and nice colors. Pitty, that the tip of the tail is missing.

    Nice subject! The focus is a bit soft. The white balance seems to be a little out of kilter. I like the composition (with the exception of the clipped tail). Very attractive background.

    This shot would have been really wonderful if the bird was facing a little bit more this way.....

    Yes I wish the whole tail was there and that you could capture that without losing too much of the full frame effect. But I'm really happy with this shot and that great eye which makes everything else look that much better. Top 5.

    Ah my little Chickadee....Cute fuzzy bird. Minus 28 C ? Brrrr. I like the blue background in this image. Without that blue it'd be hard to get the winter feel. It sets off your bird nicely.

    shame the tail end is missing. like the capture with the bird food in the beak
looking at the seeds, in the winter it helps to warm them in water to break the husks and this is also speeds digestion
your reference to the ease in temperatures is that for the walkers benefit or the birds???
