    Beautiful shot! I love the clarity of the subject against the green bokeh. The composition is perfect and the pose of the wren dynamic.

    Well caught and I like the curved framing

    very well done... the posture of the bird on the rail makes one wonder what he is looking at... and blurry background makes the bird the main subject.

    Nearly identical to the Bewick's Wren on the west coast. They never sit still, so very tricky to capture. Nice job.

    Classic wren pose, well-shot. Like the background. and the (fence?) bars make a good perch.

    A nice amount for action captured with both the pose and the slight blur of the tail.

    Robert: Yes, the tail is soft. Birds twitch a lot so possibly motion blur. I'm mainly concerned with keeping the eye in focus.

    Great composition. The curved wrought iron leads one into and out of the image quite nicely. My slight quarrel is that the background feathers or wing (I can't tell) is a bit soft. Then again, one can't have everything. Well done.
