    Sorry, I know I keep posting photos, but last night, I was lucky! Very very lucky!

    There are some tree stumps at the bottom of our garden where we have a bird feeder. I got home from work last night and although not very sunny, the light was great, so I set up a trap.

    I placed some bird feed on one of the stumps, put the camera on a tripod, focused on the top edge of the tree stump and set an Aperture to include about 2 inches beyond the focus point. Set the camera to Remote, went and hid in the summer house with Infrared remote in hand........

    I got lucky. Sorry for yet another share, but I love these shots and I'm proud to have captured them!

    Absolutely Brilliant shots, well done, you must be so chuffed!

    What camera do you have Craig?

    Thanks both, can't believe how they came out and you're right although chuffed is an understatement

    I have a Nikon D7000 (and also on old Nikon D70s) with a variety of lenses.

    Brilliant Craig, 1st class, go to the top of the class. You can keep boring me with these picture for ages, as has been said if you don't want to look you don't have to.

    I still prefer all those pics of birds you sent me under plain paper wrapper though...:winky:

    Set the trap up again this evening, didn't get anything apart from this cheeky chap who kept turning up. Not a brilliant photo as I wasn't expecting a bird to fill the whole frame, so didn't have the metering quite right for it.
