Very nice shot, John. You have great sharpness, and a cool blurred background!

Thanks Mike, you're very kind but actually I got a shot with a better angle and pose, but there was motion blur unfortunately! Close second though :)

A Siskin. Full disclosure, this was at a nature reserve, where there are many in residence at the moment however it was on a feeder. I composed to avoid the feeder though just so it feels a little bit less like cheating :)

And this is a better pose from the Nuthatch, but with some motion blur which I was able to correct a little bit in post.

Did you merge all three or just pick the best one?

I just pick the one I like best. Many of my shots pop up all of a sudden (quail for example). I just don't have any time to change my settings, so I bracket with three shots and simply pick the one that works the best. I've never really played around much with HDR. I really should though.

That's what I do too most of the time; I think it's a good strategy. All else being equal you can pick the optimum exposure for processing.

Absolutely. Fantastic photography. Indeed so much like a painting. Wall hanger without a doubt.

That's really nice of you to say, Neal. Thank you very much for such a warm compliment.

Very pretty capture, fotoi. The colors are brilliant, and I like the water dripping off the end of the woody's bill.

These are a couple of beauties Dennis! They are so sharp and quite colorful! The detail you got in the eye of the first shot is amazing!
