This is one of a pair that come into the garden so I hope to get a shot of them together, sorry its another bird pic taken in the garden but I had my 10th TIA a while ago so have not ventured out to much lately, just keeping my hand in with these.

If I had taken such a picture, I'd have been PROUD of it. Your 300mm pairs up well with the K10D!! Well done.

Excellent shot John. Best of luck with getting them together. Very territorial, and even nasty when they fight. Hope they are a mating pair then you might have a chance.

Yes Paul they are a pair because he stands guard while she is feeding, they have been on the same branch and bird table but I was not quick enough, plus I did not want to move to much in case I disturb them, but patience is a virtue and being a chippy I have alot of that.

Thanks once again for all your comments.
