A tiny bit of fluff, more voice than flesh & bone:

 

/applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=http://www.wildlightphoto.com/birds/troglodytidae/mawr01.jpg&key=3ec163e79a68db35abb168c820a33f2e50b22bc9c70fff8b0cb337aa27a90b1d">

 

This bird was one of hundreds in the Yolo Bypass wildlife area between Sacramento and Davis. The song is the bird's territorial defense; a highly variable song, a neighboring wren will often repeat specific riffs of his neighbor's song.

 

technical stuff: Leica R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO + 2x APO-Extender-R, shoulder stock & monopod.

 

All comments welcome.

Excellent capture for selective focus, clarity, color and bokeh.

Hey Doug,

Beautiful, I do not think I ever saw a picture where you use the 2x I can not see anything wrong with it. Looks just as good as a shot with the 1.4x. So why do you not use it more or have I just missed a mess of posts?

 

Cheers Jan

Doug,

 

Wrens are one of my favorites... and once again you have done an incredible job of capture.

I don't like your images. They make me feel inadequate

Great capture of expression on a calling bird, beatifully framed.
