So I was trying to capture a Robin, but this House Sparrow was the best I could get...

The robin kept sitting with a branch across his face:

Very pretty shots, Kristan! The sparrow especially looks terrific in that nice natural setting.

Thanks, given the oof background is another house it still comes across well.
I keep getting frustrated with my old 75-300 and it's chromatic aberration, along with the heavy cropping needed, but when I stop pixel peeping and just enjoy the pics at this size I remember there's much more to photography than the equipment used.

These are really nice, Kris. I had to learn the same thing about my 75-300.
