I know just how hard these captures can be. I've spent hours trying to shoot our local ruby-throated species in flight with no feeder or flower in the shot.

Congrats!

An extraordinarily good shot. Quite perfect. (I like some birdy shots...!)

What an underrated camera the K10 is.

Well done!

A.
Best wishes,

Thanks for the comments, the picture has been cropped and because of the black background I was able to clone out the bird feeder with out to much trouble. I agree about the K10D I like it very much but I wish that I had not sold my ME Super that and my Super A are still my two favorite Pentaxs, well maybe one day Ill replace them.
