I bumped the ISO, as you can see, to 1600, in order to achieve 1/500sec of shutter speed. And at F4.0 so I was squeezed between stopping down and sacrificing shutter speed, which I wasnt keen on doing after seeing yesterday's pics.
Comments please

By the way, its heavily cropped, and light wasn't exactly the best

Thanks Ken, I need quite the lady luck to get these little ones, the goldfinches are proving to be quite tricky to catch.

I am certain that I aimed at the bird and my focus was on it but I think the it caught the brither spot, its just a fraction apart

Well, next time

This one was against the light, considering the postion and the distance I think it wasn't too bad, I was expecting an absolute disaster actually until I opened the file

I just wanted to show how these little dunnocks move so quickly, specially their heads , I had my ISO already on the ceiling and got my SS at 90. That's quite a spin of the head

Absolutely right Shim, , and in the meantime there will always be the moon and the smoke

It was still light, the sun shining from one of the sides. But cloudless, couldnt resist the temptation to snap it.
I will go and check if its still cloudless and may be take a couple more.

These were taken with the DA*300 and Tamron 1.4x TC

this is the closest I can come up with Mike.
Still not at your quality

The settings must be wrong, I lowered the ss a lot. Let me go have a look at one of the other ones I took earlier, there might be one with a faster shutter speed
