I can see a fair bit of grain in the detail of the bird but none in the background. The image looked to me like a masked and unsharpened, if slightly blurred background, with a sharpened subject. Nothing objectionable to me though. It wasn't meant as criticism and was more a question related to the Sony.

It's funny because I would kill for a chance to photograph the birds you see every day. Sigh.

Isnt that interesting/funny ho that works? Common stuff to one is rare to others.

Yes I agree 100% MedicineMan,... The rose bush they sit on from time to time is used by all the birds in the yard. I think I've shot about everything in that rose bush.

Another amazing image Kev. The blue and the orange so complimentary. Perfect composition and framing.
