I'm hiding in the blind and this Catbird can just sense that I'm there but he just can't quite see me.

Lovely, crisp shot. You can see the bird's curiosity here!

Now that is a crisp shot! I was plagued with ISO, yours much better schemed.
The Fantail looks 'plump'....cold while there? Preggers? Maybe just the way they are.

Thanks very much! Yes. these birds are very active and it was sometimes hard to get a fast shutter speed without bumping up the ISO. I was lucky here. You wouldn't believe how many Fantail shots I took all over the place just a few keepers - and I never did get a really good one with the tail fanned. I think the bird's shape is just how it was. I shot this at the end of an exceptionally warm NZ summer and it definitely wasn't cold.

That's amazing. I realise that this was at 840mm, but it looks as though you were right there with him/her.

He kept cawing my name, so I took his picture. :-)
