This Male Whitethroat had loads of attitude, for a small bird he had a loud voice.

Those tricolors in mating plumage are amazing. Nice capture.

Thanks!

Never seen one these, nice shot.

Thank you Sidknee, I counted 7 at Uphill in Weston Super Mare, on the hedges around the boat yard (Grid Reference ST315582) . Can't be all that far from you.

This is the female he was protecting...

Common Whitethroat (external link) by Paul Cousins (external link) on Flickr

Great Whitethroat shots, Paul. The two main problems I always have with these are (1) getting near enough and (2) getting the skulking b*****s showing in the open. Easier with a singing male, of course, but even so, you did marvellously with these.

Wow! What wonderful sharpness. Those feathers really stand out from the screen. Almost a 3D effect.

Like many, we go on a trip and come home with thousands of images-most to
never see the light of day....just trigger happy I guess.
Example last month Poof and I brought back 24K files from Florida :(
This shot from two years ago and never developed.

Thank You Jack, these whitethroats are use to dog walkers,....I was lucky, I didn't go looking for them I just stood still for 10 minutes ready and waiting and they just popped out and showed themselves.
