Title: Bluetit on the feeder, and golden pigeon
Post by: jgs001 on April 08, 2009, 04:52:26 pm
Shot for a competition, you don't want to know how much has come off the edges of this shot .... suffice it to say, I used a chainsaw, not scissors to crop it...

250mm though double glazing

I caught this one as the sun was setting casting that golden light about

Lol  V E R Y good. The blue tit looks apprehensive and the pigeon is saying "'Ere, what going on ? , something's going on- Mmmm"

Once again, an excellent bokeh.

Cheers John, love the captions  :D. The 55-250 does seem to produce some really good results for a plastic bodied lens costing under 200.
