Ive been going through some of my earliest bird images today (I bet I'm not the only one doing similar!) and I came across this one from almost exactly 8 years ago which I took with my (then new) 7D + 400mm f5.6. After some work with modern software I thought it turned out okay:

Hi Mark...

Sweet shot! Nice composition, background and processing.

Very sweet pose.

Blue tits are such lovely birds, but so common people just ignore them.

Did you ever see such a look of utter contempt in the eye of a bird, at having its photo taken?

As for the bird... looks like some kind of porcelain ornament, but it was a genuine chicken.

These are small, but the ones out there are far away.

Note: the EXIF info for my recent images shows "Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS". I'm actually shooting an FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens. The POTN gear database needs to be updated.
