FZ200 Small Birds and a Cat

The birds were taken at a nearby lakeside park that contains protected wetlands. The Bewick's Wren was just off the main path. A flock of Bushtits was too far off the main path and moving further away. But I was able to get ahead of them, finding a fisherman's path where I found some partial cover in the shade of a large shrub. I wasn't very well concealed, standing there with a bright white jacket, but I tried to keep movement slow and to a minimum. FYI, Bewick's Wrens are 5" and Bushtits are really tiny things, about 4" bill to tail tip. All birds shot at 108mm (600) and a Nikon TC-E15ED was used for the Bushtits. The first two Bushtits were cropped and pp'd a bit on an iPad using Photogene.

Your comments, criticism, and especially helpful suggestions are welcomed.
