While i was chasing some sparrows, a Carolina Wren popped up and posed for a few minutes. Gave me enough time to adjust the settings. I kind of like the tri-tone background but just wish those sticks didn't grow out of his back. Images were pp'ed, resized but uncropped.

C/C welcome.

This is one bird I found very hard to capture. You did really well capturing this cutie Fee. Like em both but if I have to choose one, it would be the second for pose and composition....both are well captured though with great details.

Those are both superb shots, I'm hard pressed to say which I prefer, (but then who cares,. .. o-kay I think the pose in the 2nd is more dynamic :) )

Print them and frame them man!

Very nice Fee. I have yet to see any wren here, but now I'll know what it is when I see it. :)

Very nice pictures, nice soft light and b/g colors and I am not at all bothered by the twigs in the b/g, besides, what a little cutie!:) ...I wish all wrens were this cooperative;)

Excellent shots of this super skittish bird. Simply outstanding. It's so difficult to get decent shots of the Wren. Brilliant work Fee. :-)


Best regards

Wow, those are superb Fee! The subtle colors are to die for! Thanks for posting this wonderful pair of shots. The branches coming out of the back are just enough OOF to not be a huge distraction, IMO. But you could also consider cloning them out.

These really pop against the foggy background. Like our UK wren but with subtle differences. The breast is lighter, as is the eyestripe.
