Hello everyone! This morning was quite beautiful, with a very heavy frost. I haven't been doing as much bird photography as I used to, but this morning made me realize what I'm missing.
However, I do have a problem: These shots don't look perfectly sharp to me... does anyone else notice this? I know a couple at least were shot at around 1/000 shutter speed, with a 580EX II, 60D, and 100-400L. I don't know, they just don't look sharp to me... is it just me?

Red Breasted Nuthatches, a real treat for me. They don't usually show up here, but now there are at least three!

The cedar tree I installed for birds to land in by the feeder was certainly pretty this morning:
