Taken at the weekend, this wee fella was obliging enough for me to get a quick shot of him :) This was the Sigma 120-300mm handheld at 186mm ish! 1/1000sec f5.6. Any C+C welcome.
Cheers Ricky

Good capture. IMHO if you cropped much tighter to the bird's tail the composition would be enhanced. The stone is quite distracting. Some cloning would easily get rid of the stone. Well done on getting the shot.
