Thanks Mate.I have been trying, unsuccessfully, for some time to " get" a photograph of a these little blighters - small fast and very wary. Usually they fly of at about the time I get close enough to make a useable image, so I am a bit chuffed with this.

You have every right to be mate. The bokeh is highlighting that tack sharp little bird beautifully.

I am still coming to terms with the lens - it is physically quite long and takes a bit of getting used to. When I get it right the lens sings.

What a beautiful little fellow. I love that you captured some of its habitat too.

Thanks Janse, I would like to get the male but they move quite quickly and are difficult to approach.

Thank you, Had the bird sitting with a bright blue sky as a background prior to this photo, so could not believe my luck when it flew onto the broken branch

Very difficult to get close so I was desperately trying to move towards the bird, carrying a tripod and a lens, so keeping it smack in the middle was my only option.
