Nice wren shot Charlie. Those guys move so fast they must be hard to capture.

An interesting revelation---I took over a dozen pictures yesterday of the birds around the feeder and most of them "sucked" because the focus was terrible.What I think happened was that I was shooting through an open window with a piece of cardboard that had a 10" hole in it.The outside temperature was in the teens and I think that I was shooting through escaping thermals that affected the sharpness of the photos.I went outside today and took several shots of the feeder stations and when I magnified them on the camera lcd they looked very sharp.The carolina wren was the best of the series and even at that it could have been better.Any comments on this phenomenon?---charliezap

Great shot, Charlie. Wrens are such tiny but sprightly little birds.

When shooting across roads or down them in hot temps I've seen a bit of distortion in sharpness in some photos and thought they were due to the thermals coming off the roads. And I've noticed a lack of sharpness sometimes when shooting in very cold temps, when my breath fogs around me, even if the fog isn't dense. I try not to breathe when it's cold. Actually, I just try to hold my breath for the time it takes to shoot.
