Birds In Man Made Winter Habitat [ PLEASE READ THE RULES BEFORE ENTERING ! ]
Challenge has finished
The series now looks at humans and animals sharing our world. For this challenge, show one or more bird in or on a MAN MADE bird habitat, ie bird table, bird box, bird bath etc, any structure designed to assist birds to get through a winter by providing a place for food or water or shelter. *Capture date is relevant in respect of being a Winter months shot so this over rides the No Restrictions rule below as Winter Months is a tickable dpr option* If unsure of any of the rules please do ask via pm. DQs of non-eligible entries will be done at the close of submissions.

Ever the careful (if messy) eater, even the unlikely success of obtaining a sunflower seed in the middle of winter does not lull this sparrow into a sense of complacency.

|Taken:||Sunday, 12th February, 2012|
|Focal length:||280 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/1000 sec|
|Notes:||I used a teleconvertor to extend focal length and stopped down the lens for sufficient depth of field. This photo was taken through a window, which I had just cleaned earlier in the day - the additional glass eats some resolution, but getting this close to my subject would have been very difficult without it. The only adjustment to the photo was a slight crop.|
